Winter Light


A quiet winter sun peeks out
over tiled roofs
from a wooly blanket of clouds
slightly lumpy
bunched and folded
against the mountain.

He casts soft,
barely there shadows,
and a hint of a glimmer
on left over raindrops
on the curve of a leaf.

He dreams of love
while the passion flower withers.

Passiflora vine

    Mister Sun is not his usual boisterous self. What brought on this quiet mood?

    Lovely, lovely, lovely… I am so glad you put down the watercolor brush (for a time anyway) to pick up the pen. Your written imagery is so picturesque and sensual…
