Bending in the Wind

Although I grew up in the Chicago area, I lived in San Antonio for nearly fifteen years.  Returning home to Chicago brought a fresh perspective and set of eyes, the ability to see old things in a new light.

I have probably seen prairie grass for most of my life without much consideration.  Looking anew, I see stark beauty and winter  strength.  With ice crystals forming, the plant bends but refuses to break, a sure sign of incomparable resiliency.
