Colors for a Palette
Sooty black for the precise
Etching of bare trees. For ice
A pale translucent hue
Approximating grey; and blue
For shadows in the rifts
Between the moon and new snowdrifts.
~Kitchen Sonnets by Ethel Romig Fuller
"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields,
That it kisses them so gently?
And then it covers them up snug.
You know, with a white quilt:
and perhaps it says, 'Go to sleep, darlings,
till the summer comes again.'"
The words from both Ethel and Lewis conjure up different colors to me.
Can you imagine walking through the grey and blue or
maybe covered by a quilt of white?
Do you sleep or hibernate through the winter months?
Are you searching for new life of the springtime?
Note: pictures taken on this day four years ago in my garden.
Today is much warmer with just rain and seeing a few daffodils pushing through the ground.
So if you haven't guessed the word today is WINTER in a multitude of colors.
