Inky Sillouettes against a Sherbet Sunrise

sunrise through loaks

Trees:

Solidified shadows,

Children of the owl hours,

Binding themselves to earth with thrusting white veins

Sucking its substance into themselves,

Becoming one with its rich blackness,

Even so,

Warm wood yearns for sunrise

Pressing aside sky

Illuminating light

With branches dipped in

Inky night.

  • sherbet, unless it’s a literary ref I’m unfamiliar with.

  • What? You haven’t heard of SherBERT friend of SherERNIE on SherSesame street? Neither have I. I’ll fix it :blush:

  • Hey, I just checked and my other spelling was good, too

    I can hold my head up in public again.

  • Jim, I’m really a terrible speller. I rely heavily on spell check. I couldn’t believe I had missed the red line. Turns out spell check liked my version even if it isn’t the usual one.

    Thanks Jack. I love the way the black trees make the light glow even more warmly. Almost every day I have a moment where I catch my breath at how beautiful it is here.

  • What a pleasure to live where you have an unobstructed view of…THAT. Fabulous to not have powerlines and such in the way.

  • Great job, I love solidified shadows. I remember in a writing course at Mat Su college I explored the idea of “tree-crets” – secret messages hidden in the shapes of backlit branches, the markings on birch bark a hidden language long forgotten, trying to tell us information about nature and our place in the circle of life, messages we no longer know how to read with our racing pulses, racing schedules, over saturated with media from sunrise to sunset, so busy going no where . . . . the trees are probably just trying to tell us to breath . . . . . thanks for sharing your gifts Kym . . . . .

  • Steve, I love the idea of tree-crets. When the moss on the limbs is back lit, it is a lime green that glows with energy –almost as if it is bursting with secrets to living.

  • I absolutely love your word choices. Stunning.
    And I rely heavily on spell check as well. It’s my saving grace. (Is it bad that I kept thinking of the song “Rubber Duckie” when I read your response? LOL)
