Photos Not Taken II

It was fortunate I left the camera at home to avoid any temptation of capturing the stark rare beauty of snow on rain making a thick frosting heavy and sculpted by wind,
perfectly coating everything and heavy up in the mountains,
the cold air came crashing in, the sun came up and everything lit up in the snow's reflection, the bright blue sunny sky,
and the dual grips on the steering wheel, gripping ruts of ice with studded tires, and coming to grips with the fact that some photos should not be taken, better to enjoy the view at the stoplight
or behind the school bus.
