Captured for the First Time!

Used with Kind Permission of Tracy at Wanderlust

Used with Kind Permission of Tracy at Wanderlust

Never before photographed in the wild!
The elusive, secretive Ice Snails

Ice Snails clinging
Before the big race
Little hearts singing
Hoping for speed and grace.

Cloaking devices active —
Only frost fairies see snails —
Rainbow refractive.
Snails leave glistening trails.

One will finish first,
Blest by the Frost Queen,
Putting on speed in a burst,
Winning rights to preen.

Fairies celebrate with hot cider,
Made from Autumn’s windfalls,
Berry tart and mushroom slider —
Feasting and fun within Fairy halls.

No wild life were harming in the making of this post. πŸ˜‰

Inspired by Tracy’s Ice photographs at Wanderlust. Check them out, they are awesome!

    • LOL That was the first idea I had, but if you don’t mind I might look over the photos again this weekend when I hope to be less tired. I’m pretty frivolous when I’m tired. I might have another idea… πŸ™‚ Thanks for letting me use your very awesome photo. Did you see the snails?


  1. Great way to use Tracy’s photograph and help it become alive! I thought (and commented) they looked like dripping sugar crystals! I have my sweet tooth always in place, I guess! I love the snails and the poetry of your words, too, Brenda! Hugs, Robin
