Picture Perfect: Winter White

Winter Light, Winter White: Self Portrait. (taken with an iPhone)
Once a snowflake fell
on my brow and I loved
it so much and I kissed
it and it was happy and called its cousins
and brothers and a web
of snow engulfed me then
I reached to love them all
and I squeezed them and they became
a spring rain and I stood perfectly
still and was a flower.

I love that hat and you look so good. Happy 2012 to you honey. How have you been? I have been having a crazy month so I am sorry I've been MIA. Are you coming back to NYC for IFB next month? I'm skipping it, got too much going on, plus I want YOU to be on a panel. XO, Jill
