“His breath like silver arrows pierced the air, The naked earth crouched shuddering at his feet, His finger on all flowing waters sweet Forbidding lay—motion nor sound was there:— Nature was frozen dead,—and still and slow, A winding sheet fell o’er her body fair, Flaky and soft, from his wide wings of snow.”
~Frances Anne Fanny" Kemble

“Sing like no one’s listening,
love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like nobody’s watching,
and live like its heaven on earth.”

    isn’t it funny that the simplest things can often be the most beautiful? Even in starkness….love this image! I do believe this beautiful tree has something to say! And stories to tell and miles to go before he sleeps!

  • You are so right, I love the barrenness of comforts in its own warmth. I stood and had a long conversation with this tree on a dead end road. Thanks for your wonderful comment!
