piercing cold decay              
triumphantly emerging
vigor springs forth fresh

liquid moves fluid
freed from frozen slumber deep
awaiting spring's green

I took these photographs earlier today walking in my yard and down the road. A few flurries fell, but most of the snow has gone liquid and a few green sprouts have pushed up. The triumph of spring has begun!

This my response to the last prompt for Photography 101, “triumph.”

Winter Stream

This little stream is across the road from my home. It usually dries up at some point in the summer, but flows and never completely freezes in the winter. I took this photo a few weeks ago on a foggy day. Today it still looks much the same. Spring has not yet arrived in the Hudson Valley, NY.

In response to the Photography 101 prompt “water” and to day one of the Five Days Challenge presented to me by Amy from Snapshots, Snippets and Scribbles. I’ll include the details in my next post.
