This gives a sharp feeling of cold.
For me, it is only too real.

This makes me think of the line where our lawn meets our path and how the relation between the two changes throughout the year - a little give and take.

I live in Maine, and I know all too well that clear crispness everything has in the thick of winter. Great job with that imagery.

Thanks for those comments, everyone. You'd be surprised (or maybe not) how long I've worked on this one. I'm delighted it seems to be working now. And , from what you say, working about as I'd hoped it would.
