 Looking at a Photograph in Winter56
I like the naked tree. The skeleton exposed and the short house nestled up
to the tall barn.
It's a lonely edifice, proud and sturdy. Not near anything else and connected
with its outbuilding.
Isolated, exposed to wind and weather. Contemplative, beautiful.
Is it time to repair, rebuild
or just survive.
Batten down the hatches.
Let the wind come.
