Filigree of frost on glass evokes childhood windows

This frost is traced only lightly on the glass. In the colder climates of my childhood, winter frost could be thick on the windows. When condensation froze and ice obscured the pane, we used our warm breath to open a view to the outdoors. Sometimes we melted peep holes with our fingers, switching hands when the cold became too much.
