December 2021

this amidst—always
searching for
breath catches, consumed, clinging
to vanishing light

silence waits,
determinedly grey,
holding on
to the bare crowns of branches–
expectant, fallow

wind rattles
inside—brumal, edged
with frozen
hope hangs tenuous, threaded–
taut, still, wintering

A seasonal dVerse quadrille for my December grid. De provided the word crown as inspiration.

    Kerfe your art and the quadrille speak to me of winter, cold, and the hope for better tomorrows. This piece is excellent. ❤️

    I captivated by your words and artwork – they compliment each other so well …. I will just have to sit and enjoy, explore in silence for a while …. lovely energy within, yet equally still …..

    This piece of art makes me think of some sort of surreal, magical tic-tac-toe game – something like what they might play at Hogwarts 😀

    I truly love these lines, especially:
    “holding on
    to the bare crowns of branches”

    What a visual that evokes!

    I love the paper, the stitching on it, the jagged edge showing on both the smooth surface of one side and the seedy underside. We reside in that plane in between. Glad to be reading and seeing your work again, K.

    I like the tension in this, and the feeling of continuity

    I love your images, Kerfe. I don’t ‘get’ much poetry, but the word that came to my mind that fits your pictures and your words is: brittle, as what surrounds most of us in this winter season. I hope I haven’t totally misread it.
