Where Silence Lives by ©Janis Zroback

Now the forest comes in its turn.
It needs to be where silence lives.
Tree upon tree in strange groves.

They don’t do very well, because the floor is too hard.
So they make a sparse forest, one branch toward the east,
and one toward the west, until it looks like crosses.
A forest of crosses.
And the wind asks…Who’s resting here
in these deep graves
? Extrat R. Jacobsen

  • An Impressionist vignette of the north in winter during the strange light of an evening snow fall while the sun’s rays are slowly dying..Ontario Canada…
  • Watercolour on Arches Paper

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    Hi Janis – my husband happened to be walking by when I had this image open and he said “wow, Who did that? I like that”. That is a huge compliment as he is not very generous with compliments. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and all the best ibn the new year.

  • Thank you so much Cal…please pass my thanks to your husband as well…all the best for 2012..
