day 107 – Icicles

February is almost over and if you haven’t enjoyed a day in the snow, shame on you.

Icicles are like frosting on the cake in wintry weather.  They adorn and showcase the exterior of homes with sparkle as if you bedazzled your house with rhinestones.  Drip, drip, drip they melt away in the sunny daylight and then freeze up again come dusky, cooler nightfall.

“God is in the details” – Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

If you have ever walked among icicles after an ice storm where the limbs of trees also become their canvas, it is like “living inside a diamond with all the walls cut and polished so they flame.”  – Robert Tristan Coffin.

Every season has its shimmer and dance.  

May the beauty of February enhance your gratitude as the month comes to an end, filling you with luminous and radiant life.
