Ye Old Winter






As times fade to dust
my longing of green pastures,
lush fields,
and fruit on the vine
is hushed.
Ye Winter of crossroads
soon trace my course,
blocking journeys.
Appearing trustworthy...
you are faithless and ready to foil,
but my hope,
my desire,
my expectation...
is that I shall succeed,
where you have failed...
to move forward,
to journey
on promise
and faith unmuffled...
Hush...be still, ye old man...
Winter...shhhh...

great shots! So rustic ... and a bit eerie too!

There is a real presence of hollowness in these shots that is quite enchanting! The paradox of winter days! Stark beauty! The 2nd shot in particular is so lovely, almost still, sad music!

Love the picket fences...your photos always intrigue me girl. Wishing you and Scratchy a great Turkey Day. I hope he gets a lil' sumthin off your plate.

Love the picket fencing - and if Ol Man Winter doesn't hear you - then just yell!

Looks like winter for sure but don't I see a little green lingering in that grass!!! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving & I hope Scratchy catches himself a Thanks-giving mouse (preferably outside). Jan

Sad to see all the summer things unused and lonely. I finally drug my birdbath and garden ornaments into the barn.

i am in love with that little old outhouse in the second picture... the old "bathhouse" that was on the property here was torn down after many moons of non use... it had become a haven or the local wood rats,, and had to go .. i still miss it...
