Siren Song

Solitary sentries

fullsizerenderaa

As Winter crept

the trees standing

as solitary sentries

through the night

waiting for their wake up call

she emerged from her hibernation

to become something more.

Something unique.

Something vibrant.

Herself.

sept - jonquille!

Sept

A splash of color

In a colorless landscape

She is soft and scalloped

She sways and dances in the light breeze

Nodding her head

In time to a silent melody

She is alone within a cohort

Singular yet part of an assemblage

She is a breath of sunshine

Softly defiant in her blooms

Of white and yellow

A stark contrast

To the browns of a world

Still in hibernation

Just waking up

To early spring

A Winter Wonderland

The snow came in great gusts

Ten inches, twelve, twenty four

Creating a purified landscape

Virginal in appearance

The wind creating immense snow drifts

It was beautiful as it fell

So soft and delicate

Each snowflake kissing my face

Like a lover

Snow

In its first pure day

Nestles atop tree branches

Creating a striking picture post card

Of a perfect winter scene

This is possibly my favorite part of snow

How it delineates the beauty in the curve of a bare limb

The brown of the branches juxtaposed with the stark white

Of the new fallen snow

Looking upward through the maze of branches

To gaze upon the winter sky

Pearlescent grey

No sun to be found

A hint that there was much more to come

That Mother Nature was not yet finished

The garden in winter is a pleasure to behold

The snow revealing everything

Suddenly trees and shrubbery

Comfortable in their hibernation

Are given substance

The snow taking the place of leaves 

Apples that should have long since fallen

Hang desperately to branches

Now, with a generous dollop of the white stuff

Looking suspiciously like ice cream 

The lonely swing

Echoes of summer fading fast

Finally given the weight of a presence

I can almost picture it

Moving to and fro

Snowy legs kicking back and forth

 

The garden was in hibernation

For the winter

But with this snow…

It has roared back to life

Solitary Sentries

photo

Winter crept in

The trees standing

As solitary sentries

Through the night

Waiting for their wake up call

The silence echoing off the new fallen snow

It was then that she emerged from her hibernation

To become something more

Something unique

Something vibrant

Herself
