Sunday May 22, 2011 Beyond the Bezone

View from studio window in winter.

The frost of winter "wanes"
Gives way to open "window's" "flight"
"Angels" whisper encouragement
"Surrender" to the season
Take off your shoes
And slip your feet
Into the "absolute" tenderness
Of new green grass
"Risk" it all

Fly into spring
Smell the flowers
Red, "yellow", pink
And all that "utters" to you
Soon enough
The "lull" of summer's
Heat will gather on your doorstep

All will be "rearranged"
"Beneath" your very nose
And before you know it
Winters frost with it's
Special chill
Will softly come again

*Yesterday I finished the Mayfield Artists Book Project, and I took it to the photographer's. Soon I will have pictures of Mayfield to share with you. I got his clothes made and am beginning to think of new projects that wait for me.

Lovely images, Annell. One I especially enjoyed was "the absolute tenderness of new green grass."

Brian Miller said...

I was quite taken ... and was moved as each season came to me through your words. I also thought that this was a very interesting and beautiful photo
