Snow Flowers

Day 7: Feb 7

I have renewed these in lieu of the Refugee Ban in the USA. Inspired by the-cassandra-project and their Every Day Challenge, I am writing every day to raise money for the Urban Justice Center. You can donate here or please spread the word. Thank you.

Plum and indigo, they sway gently, black satin faces drinking up the crisp moisture of the snow.
