Saturday 11 December 2010: Winter Skies

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show. ~Andrew Wyeth

During the winter my attention was attracted to the changes in the stars and planets in the sky. ~Paul Nurse

Winter skies remind me
of places I've been
of moments in time now lost.

In a cold winter's breath
magic slipped through my fingers.

Now when I look down
I see an old woman's hands
with the same desires
of a young girl.

December can be cruel.
