Winter tree

Winter tree

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.

this was obviously exactly what the poet had in mind except the branches a bit scguggly; very nice to see bothe the moon and sheep nicely exposed

wonderful shot - I love the undulating slope, so many great areas of interest in the shot. The Poem is perfect !.

Sheep have good coats, and tree's have good anti freeze, photographers are just fools standing in the cold :-) Grand shot and I really like the Poem.

The poem is perfectly matched to this quiet image

The poem echoes the stillness. Well done.

Perfect poem for this fine image.

what a vibrant scene...such a strong implied perspective through shivering sheep, shocked tree, and gibbous moon...bravo John too for scampering about these chilly hills with your 'photo-radar' kept full on...V

You are doing great work in matching your images with poetry.
This image certainly captures the cold of a winter's morning.

Wise trees and watchful sheep.

You old romantic you!

It's a sheepy standoff! Cool compo John! :)
J. Scott Coile16-Jan-2012 21:34
More great verse and a powerful image.
Brian Samuel16-Jan-2012 21:23
Looks like a sheepy stand-off. I'm amazed that all of them have their heads-up.
marie-jose wolff16-Jan-2012 21:21
a half moon, a beautiful romantic image that illustrates the poem so well! V
joanteno16-Jan-2012 21:12
