Winter’s Landscape

Winter’s Landscape

(watercolor painting)

Caught and held by naked wind, my soul sleeps in winter’s weathering woods beneath the hidden trees. The quiet beauty of fractured light that mirrors a silent shadow of hope awakens me. Slowly, my heart stretches old icicle bones to linger in a kiss from the tranquil season that deepens the dream.

Crossing the senses into undisturbed thoughts, the chilling bite of a wet day keeps its distance. I leave sanctuary impressions here; imprints of time and space that follows me everywhere.

Please, please do not disturb the winter’s dream that happens soft and slow. It seems winter is within me, strong silent artistry refined by the blanket that covers and keeps me warm.
