A Delicate Balance (2010)

snow piled on rose of sharon pods

A Delicate Balance

I posted this on December 27 last year. It’s so beautiful I wanted to share it again, and here’s hoping we have some snow.

The dried pods of the Rose of Sharon look like hands reaching to catch the gentle snowfall, each flake silently landing on another, piling lightly, filling the space between to make a perfect cap, glowing with the warm light of sunrise. Some things are so beautiful they must simply be seen.
