Back to the Bare Bones

January 1 2014 Parkway 008

Our landscape is back to the bare bones.

January 1 2014 Parkway 005

Again we can catch a glimpse at the structure of things,

the truth of them.

January 1 2014 Parkway 014

Leaves blown from branches, grasses falling back to Earth,

January 1 2014 Parkway 016

we are left with the finely wrought network of stem and branch

only partially obscuring our view of what is beyond.

The horizon has opened.

January 1 2014 Parkway 017

Woodland windows opened to see past the edges,

into the heart of things.

There is a hardness, an emptiness, a utilitarian look to the world in winter.

January 1 2014 Parkway 012

Sharpness in the air echoed by the sharpness of the light

January 1 2014 Parkway 038

Echoed again in the sharp chirps and trills and laughter

of birds calling to one another

January 1 2014 Parkway 027

With warning, with encouragement, with wisdom

January 1 2014 Parkway 029

With the sheer joy of a light washed winter day.
