In between storms, I returned to Maine’s Morse Mountain. Winter skies reveal broad vistas.
Spot the snow-clad peak of Mt. Washington in New Hampshire 100 miles away, away, away….
The sea swallowed snow before winter froze the tide.
The icy path is treacherous. Surreal.
The sun dares not climb too high in the sky.
Seawall Beach is wiped bare.
Only the islands can stand the frigid sea.
Lobster season is over, except far offshore.
Winter waves dribble forts.
Ice sculpts sand.
