water glass


We walked to school this morning through sleet and freezing drizzle. We were well dressed for the weather, and the trees were beautiful, with twigs encased in tiny icicles. By the time we arrived, the day had warmed enough to be rainy, and the branches were bare again. i didn't take a picture. The empty waterglass was ice enough to remind me later.

Oh, this is perfect. Many a time I've been tempted to photograph those icy carapaces, yet I've held back and wondered why. I suspect that somehow I knew that a photo just wouldn't 'get' it. But your empty waterglass . . . ah, now, that conjures up those solidwater casings.
