i love the structure ... a new way ... you show a new way again ..

after the rain
that followed the snow–
bright moon!

i love the cadence of the phrase and 'bright' is important considering the preceding grey ..

add to it the bright of the white of snow and i am getting a bright moon and a bright shadow of the moon on the snow ...

really really luverly stuff Bill ... so nicely done ! ... (so nice also to see a pic of you finally !) >>> Gina
