How nice that you give Russell credit for his beautiful poem - and a link to his site. I especially liked "tomorrow's hardwoods" in your poem.
a beautiful January poem...like a blank journal page just waiting for footsteps and paw prints to write their hopes and dreams and secrets down for safe keeping...
Kass - the poem is mine, the wonderful winter photo is Russells...Thanks Joanne :)
It is that "cold pewter sky" which russles my bones and causes me to rise and put more oak on the fire, brrr!A beautiful new year to you.
Thanks goatman - to you, too!
Such great winter images. I don't much like the cold, but I do like the way you describe it.
January snowa crisp, white pagea new year.what a perfect beginning to a thoroughly rewarding poem.
Your words... there is magic in how you use them to paint such an accurate picture. Pewter sky: perfect.
Wow, this is so beautiful! The poem and image, juxtaposed, make me feel so serene! Bravo!!
Oops, that was a slip of the fingers and the mind. I know you wrote the poem and I even commented how much I liked the hardwoods showing their bones. Sometimes I comment to quickly and don't proof read.
thanks Quaze, you who have your own way with wordsBarbara - the cold is all part of it but too much can be bothersome, I agreeThanks Ruth!Pleased that it pleased you Reya :)Kass - not a problem. I do the same thing!
Enjoyed your beautiful poem. And glad you liked this image. Today here in Iowa we have another blizzard. Lots of snow, cold, ice and wind. But this is January and this is Iowa, so it is not unexpected.That peaceful image of the fence and shadow is gone, gone, gone today! Heh!I always enjoy stopping by your blog.Take care.
What a beautiful photograph (with thanks to Russel, clearly) and the accompanying words were perfect, Pauline. Ask and ye shall receive, be afraid, be very afraid. The Spam Haiku archive: http://mit.edu/jync/www/spam/
Thank you Russell, both for the loan of the photo and the kind words. We're due for more snow tomorrow...LOS - I will NEVER eat Spam again (though I may write more haiku)
Wonderful marriage of photograph and words. Perfection.
