the gift of sight

We are by nature observers, and thereby learners.
That is our permanent state-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Much like William Blake's famed passage from the Marriage of Heaven and Hell
"to see the world in a grain of sand, heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour"
I saw many things in the ice crystals, prisms of color, reflections of the emerging sun and magic in the delicate nature of the fine bits of water preserved for mere moments in their lacy pattern, lucky me to have seen it before it was absorbed into the mass of snow as i shoveled the driveway
