the winter moods series – first winter

first winter
without
the chill spills
from rivers
within
the skies sigh
withdrawn
in green dreams
of honeysuckle

This is the first in a series I’m working on that pairs short poems with paintings. The series is called Winter Moods and you can see the companion painting to this piece over at tied to sky.

  1. Love the poem, and it’s a great way to get inspiration to pair two art forms. I’ve done it myself a few times… and you’ve given me an idea (for when I have a bit of energy!)

      1. For the moment, I’m leaving your reply to my comment marked ‘unread’ in my feed reader, to remind myself to do this… hopefully within the next few days or so. Thanks Sarah 🙂
