Dragon’s Breath and Lake Snow

Cold, crisp, clear blue sky. December. Absolutely still. Lake mist swirls above the surface of the glassy water rising in billows of pure white brushed with soft yellow and peachy-pink. Breath of the dragon floats above Lake Champlain. Then falls back to earth as glittering, dancing lake snow. Take- my- breath- away beautiful even after almost 40 years of witnessing. I am blessed to live here, by this lake, surrounded by this beauty.
