tempest magnetic

I was thinking about winter, and considering both Colleen’s prompt words, cold and storm, and Sue Vincent’s photo prompt below.  The Oracle definitely surprised (and delighted) me with the final line.

ancient roots murmur
beneath frosted clouds of trees–
wind bursts into song

    It worked! What a fabulous piece of art to accompany your words. Kerfe, do you create the artwork first and then write your poem? I’m struck by how well the image illustrates your words. This is another masterpiece. ❤

    The last line is your own, isn’t it, based on the Oracle’s available words?

    That hits the spot. I also love your title, is that a quotation or your words?

    Our ancient roots always murmur, the past offers wisdom, but sometimes we turn a blind-eye.
