Frosted sky

frosted window

A fast frost fell last night, covering the field and all its grasses, boughs left long since summer, with rows of crystal white. A covering so fragile, so fleeting, that the warmth off my hand as I stood close to it, dissolved them without a touch.
And the rising sun, though the air still frozen and cold, erased them in an instant.

Memories of a childhood when 'Jack Frost' would coat even the inside of the widows....a breat and a finger to write a few words.
Fabulous images Nina.
