Winter Forest

winter forest 2 4 x 6 text comma

silences of white–
stillness digs deeper, rooted,
vast.  Elemental.

Sue Vincent’s photo prompt this week, above, echoed perfectly the image I was working on for winter.  It’s not winter weather here yet, but experience tells me its arrival can be sudden and swift.  And the trees always do look magical when they are wearing snow.

    Perfectly captured! That stillness is mystifying! It snowed here yesterday evening and a city normally so loud suddenly became so still, so magical!

    Love the image, both in the words and photographs. We have a similar blanket of snow here in the Highlands ☺💜

    Lovely image and words, Kerfe. That first snowfall is often just like that, sort of magical and still. Everything seems hushed and pristine.

    It will come soon enough, but I will enjoy today when it is 65 F, sunny, and bright.

    Love your collage haiga. “Vast elemental” placed on the triangular peak is perfect positioning for effect. Beautifully done, Kerfe. ❤

    This is an astonishingly powerful post Kerfe. Your art work immediately transmits that feeling of deep winter cold and then your haiku reiterates it – adding to the feeling of winter stillness . Thanks so much for linking to my tree theme.
