hipstamatic snow day

i took this on the first day of snow on october third.  since then we’ve gained snow and lost snow…a few times.  the cycle of melt and freeze has melted and frozen into sheets of black ice six inches deep.

the winds pick up, biting and bitter; the lights flicker.  daylight dares a paler shade than dark near noon.  it’s too cold for anything to fall now.

some wish it will snow.  others hope it won’t.

i hope the weather won’t delay my getting out of here.  🙂



Flat Top in Anchorage


slow and puffy-eyed sunrise;

i feel the dance of the day.

rise and shine but cloud and glow;

the temperature tepid;

wide-side alaskan eyes timid.

its only inside the colors appear vivid,

and the melody plays as soft as the sky

emits light

to my day, good morning~
