Hoarfrost Magic

Hoarfrost and moon at dusk.  
Our city has been decorated with hoarfrost over the last couple of days.  I snapped this picture to get an idea of what it looks like.  The trees and shrubs look so pretty when they are cloaked in white.  I found a poem I'd like to share as well.

Hoarfrost Magic

There is nothing quite as beautiful
As a frozen winter scene
At times with proper moisture
Hoarfrost crystals can be seen

It’s like climbing into another world
As thick ice forms on everything
Nothing else is quite the same
As what these crystals bring

Beauty beyond anything else
Forms on the world around
Gathering up and clustered
Just like a frozen shroud

There’s a stillness in the air
When Hoarfrost crystals form
The quiet world is engulfed
From this beautiful winter storm

So if you are so fortunate
To see the hoarfrost magic
Grab your camera and capture
Nature’s icy antics!
