trees on sky

with 4 comments

This time of year, the lost leaves allow a new observation of sky.  The bare branches remind me of pen and ink on paper.

 

these leafless trees / brush against /a linen sky / ink strokes /on rice paper

perhaps this sparse oak

colored the pale sunrise

palette, faded autumn

~

even loaded, lean branches

lay only brief color

on canvas sky

brush more suited to calligraphy

a few abbreviated strokes

a terse ‘good morning’
