30 Words: Icicles


From the eaves they dangle
Melting to form a point;
Sharp like teeth,
Biting cold.
Yet even more pronounced
Is the blue sky promise
Of a warmer, dryer day ahead.

  2. I love icicles! They make me happy that I am warm and cozy inside the house. They make me happiest when they are dripping and telling me it is getting warmer outside.

    1. That's a great way of looking at it! I do think they're pretty, but am really relieved that the majority of them are gone now (seriously, in the last couple of hours. . .poof!) It's warming up and we're looking at highs at almost 70 for this weekend. Yay! Before long, I'll be back at the beach :)

  6. Like craggy stalactites, I love the imagery of the 'biting cold' as they look like dinosaur teeth. But the promise of warmer days ahead. They are coming, right? Thanks for joining me in the 30 Words Challenge! Enjoy the day. Erin

    1. Thanks Linda! I thought so too. After days of just white clouds and no sun, no blue I was beyond thrilled to see nothing but blue sky yesterday!
      It was bliss and it's even better today. :)

    1. Ana, I'm so glad I got a smile out of you but so sorry you have to deal with the snow. It's all gone here now (and I'm not trying to rub that fact in at all.) I have a great appreciation for what y'all in the North have to go through as I couldn't bear it for months on end. Stay warm!

    1. Thanks Karen! I used to fancy myself a poet, it's been a while though. This exercise is a great prompt to get those skills flowing again.

  10. Great photo. I love the contrast between the blue sky and black shadow of the eave. And in between is the ice.
