More Bare Bones . . .


There is something in the sparseness–

the sparse stretching to the sky,

the intertwining, community of bare bones,

waiting for green buds and fancy dresses.

Spare looks like loss,

but faith sees the bloom and fruit of what will be

in time.

Hope dresses bones in breezy longing.

    Awaiting the promise of Spring, Genesis 8:22: “While the earth remains, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, And day and night shall not cease.”

    Will you take pictures of these same bare bones in spring bud then in full bloom?

  4. Love these parts – “Spare looks like loss,” and “Hope dresses bones in breezy longing.”

    I so love the third pic and also, the play of light in the fourth. Btw, I’ve been taking pics of the sky recently and has not come up with something half as clear or as lovely as yours. Now, why is that, lols! ^^ Your art is impressive. 🙂

    I love these trees! I really like the poem too:
    Hope dresses bones in breezy longing.
    This is a great line!

    I think there’s a calm peacefulness in the gloominess and the “bare bones” of winter 🙂

I would love to hear from you!
