Amazing how a deadline makes one focus.
So this woodland story is complete...
for the time being at least.
When starting this piece
The year was closing with a blue moon
and days of snow followed.
If I was starting this piece today
the trees would be bent over in the wind and rain
and hundreds of American Goldfinches would be perched in the trees
Trees can dance beyond the moon....
...and with the stars.
Trees of years gone by stand guard among their offspring.
Rocks and boulders litter the woodland floor
making it tough on trees to stay rooted.
