After the past two days of rain and last night’s wild and woolly weather, this afternoon’s fleeting rays of sunshine were most welcome.
Snow-eating fog enhanced the moment as
ever-present beech leaves emitted their own specks of light.
And suddenly my world was aglow.
So was my heart because I discovered that a friend had visited.
A fallen oak branch revealed a fun find: jelly ear fungi aka Auricularia auriula.
And the vernal pool offered a reflective stance.
Within a single droplet, time was encapsulated.
Elsewhere, numerous other droplets enhanced twigs and
Pine needles displayed their own adornments as
new growth showed its preparation for the days ahead.
All the while, former growth glowed in the knowledge of previous light while
some knew its days were waning.
The same was true for others caught on a downward trend.
Beauty beheld glints of contradiction while
messages reverberated outward.
A nearby spire gave off its own light filled with hope and direction as
the sun’s last rays bounced off gathered clouds.
Fog once again enveloped the field and all who live here.
One newly created bright spot captured my attention as I headed in.
Day is done. The fleeting rays of sunshine have moved beyond.
