In the Hollow of the Sky

Sunday morning is more than just another winter day over the beautiful woodlands of Maine.

"In the Palm of His Hand"

Treetops search the hollow of the sky,
Their snowy branches translucent.
Here the north wind comes to hide,
Sweeping clouds away with swift surprise.

How wondrous to behold!

Sun Polished

Polished and golden,
A deep blue rides with the wind
To the distant horizon.
Now empty, soften by sunshine,
A cobalt sky...

Sunday in the Woodlands

The woodland awakens;
Washed with dawn's brightest light,
Pine tree steeples mark the skyline.
Etched by winter sunrise, snow fresh,
A Sunday morning in Maine...

It looks beautiful, and a wonderful poem too, but you most certainly have more snow than I do up here in Canada.

Living in the sub-tropics of Queensland, Australia, seeing such beautiful snow shots almost takes my breath away. Your amazing poetry perfectly matches your wonderful photography.
