The cool colours of
A Winter Morn
Seen through dark branches
Barren and shorn
The crisp cold air and
A weaker sun
Remind you winter
Is not yet done*
This is about the only winter scenery I get to see, as most of my garden – and everyone else’s – is Evergreen.
Here you see dawn, as the sun rises through the bare branches of a neighbour’s tree; the pinky-purple sky courtesy of a few clouds.
*Not yet done. This is an Americanism. My younger daughter used to say it sometimes as a teenager. In English you would tend to say something is not yet over, or finished.
But, you know, it rhymes so nicely with sun!
