Still Learning To See

Finalist #14, a winter tree

CVMC Finalist-3528

A deep blue sky, a late afternoon cloud lighted by the setting sun and a finally bare Tamarack (Larix laricina). What a remarkably beautiful and simple gathering.

And a lovely poem, a perfectly appropriate celebration of this photograph, came my way today from Vermont Humanities Council:

Winter Trees

by William Carlos Williams

All the complicated details

of the attiring and

the disattiring are completed!

A liquid moon

moves gently among

the long branches.

Thus having prepared their buds

against a sure winter

the wise trees

stand sleeping in the cold.
