On the first day of February, we are experiencing the edge of the arctic vortex.  The combination of bright winter sun with freezing air and water is awesome.  Here are two quick haikus to capture the spirit of the day.


Ice inscribed,

the greenhouse bears witness

to the fingered prints of winter.

Dazzle ducks be-jewel

the sun-drenched sapphire stream -

skating on thin ice.
