Happy Poetry Friday! I took a break one morning, before going off to teach and started this poem. I think it began as a Fib, but don’t remember. I had every intention of sketching the view through my studio window that inspired the poem. But alas, when the view was there I wasn’t available, so it’s a bit of a memory sketch.
STILLNESS OF TREETOPS
of treetops in the
morning’s curving, autumnal leaves.
Swaying , weeping willow’s whisper,
stoic cedars still as statues,
leafless trees but proud–
