A smooth-barked beech tree leaned in for a cold-bark hug this morning.
Its highest branches radiated a joyful feeling.
Queen Nefertiti appeared in a snow-sculpture.
While a snow-finger pointed inward.
Nearby a lacey angel wing perfectly formed by the icy flowing water. Message: Look within for joy. Be touched by the angels and the ancient ones seeking oneness with the Light. Peace
I think this is a young Bigtooth Aspen, a close neighbor to today's beech-friend. It looked surprised to have a visitor stop by. The raised spots are lenticels, the pores through which the tree exchanges gases with the atmosphere.
