dusk arising

there and here




he carried her image
into the woods
for to paint her
in colours of her seasons
rich in autumal gold
with the essence of
new bud still shining
from eyes of gameplay
thrilling the beauty
of mature limbs reach
firmly earthed
in soils of reality.

colours of her love
surrounded him.

    a beautifully crafted dedication DA .. this could easily have been written both to and for my favourite oak tree in autumn or spring .. a noble specimen indeed and with a spiritual if not sacred presence ...

    That image will be forever with you d a and may the colours of that love be always there.
