Winter wildnerness

I was unable to find sufficient time to spend outside yesterday since it was so crazy, so I ended up spending my time outside in the snow this morning.

Because I was struggling last week with writing about my outside experience with words, I am trying something different this time. I'll try to include videos, of the creek and of my walk back up from the creek. (I'm having trouble uploading the videos so hopefully that will be up soon...) I'll also include two haikus I've written, because they are an example of trying to say a lot with very few words.


delicate fractals
stealth beauty, oft unnoticed
one breath and it's gone

frozen stillness, sleep
snow fall blankets the silence
one stream flows, alive
