Refraction is this week’s Photo Challenge, one that led me to some photos that I took a winter or two ago.
To be honest, I am not a fan of math and physics and winter; however, the beauty of all is shown to me each year during those months of cold and snow. Through the dining room window, I can see the shadowy fingers of winter stretching across the back yard.
The beauty of it all has even inspired a poem or two such as this one included here:
Observations on a Kitchen Window*
On the sliding glass panes
above the stainless steel sink
There is a pattern
So precise in its definition—
Trapezoids and squares and angular gizmos
All crisp in their glory
Set in their rays, just
Defying the January sun
To start a meltdown!
