Monday Muse - Frosty

While there is still no snowman in sight, there is definitely frost in the air. Thank you Dawn for your inspiring quote. I lit our first fire of the season this afternoon. Our playroom is downstairs and is always much colder than the rest of the house. I am hoping that I will be able to keep it a bit toastier without cranking up the heat on the whole house using the fireplace. It is pretty but does not seem to be helping the temperature much.

Plants stiff with frost,

a solitary rose edged with delicate lace;

the night air has tightened the earth,

prevented birth,

but the sun's heat starts to melt

the shimmering specks away.
