A Bird Made of Light

White Heron. Peace Valley

White Heron. Peace Valley

I saw it, then, white and slender,

a bird made of light.

It walked in the water on its long, slim legs,

perfectly balanced,

as if dancing to a music it could only hear.

For weeks, for months, for years and decades,

through winter dark and summer bright,

through rain and drought, death and rebirth

its soul, one with its master,

the tiger slept.

Trees in Winter

Filed under: Photograph,Pictures — carmenferreiroesteban @ 2:36 pm

Winter Trees

Like trees shed their leaves and, vulnerable in the winter cold,

expose their branches, naked, to the world,

so writers, word by word

in their stories, reveal their souls.

Fire and Ice

“Some say the world will end in fire,


Some say in ice.


From what I’ve tasted of desire,
I hold with those who favor fire.


But if it had to perish twice
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.”

― Robert Frost

A drop of blood,

a seed of hope

trapped in the snow,

awaits the thaw.

Winter Blues

Silent trees in the winter cold,

roots in the snow,

search the sky with naked arms, and dream

of distant summers

to come.

It was freezing cold in Lake Galena today.

And empty.

Lake Galena

Only me,



   and the geese,                                                                             and the ducks.


And the broken tree.


Like my heart.

Welcome to my mind.

First the muse strikes . . .

. . . then the plot twists as it unfolds.

And the muse watches.
