A frosty morning delight

I awoke this morn to a beautiful bitterly cold wintery delight
Shrouded by nights darkness a Pogonip fog crept in to cast its magic spell
Wielded a wintery wand placing a frosty shawl upon all within my sight

Trees branches hung low encased in icy jewels as if an elegant crystal chandelier
While a spider web displaying a frosty garland glistens in the morning light
High above a flight of geese are strung across the sky as if some vocal bandolier

Pogonip did dazzled us with such visual delights but they are not meant to last all day
For a dusty sun has risen through this frosty morning haze
And later today this sun’s rays shining down will melt it all away

    So many of our treasured sights and moments are doomed to be replaced by things immeasurably more mundane. It's nice to be reminded that the former exist and may come again.

    Pogonip is the name given to a very cold fog by the native Americans. These appear in many of western valley and they leave everything in a heavy frosty coating that is beuatiful to see. The early native people referred to a pogonip as white death.
