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

pale sunrise


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’
