Notice the tiny , single bird on the branch just up to the right of the bird feeder.
Under the layers,I find myself.
Promises yet to be met,time slipping slowly away.
I am ....waiting with unceasing dependence on a change.
Feeling intense longing,the morning light that comes with a song.
In the stillness of the cold,
welcoming whatever sunshine the sun may giveI feel hopeful.
Summer... fill us with life.
The color has not been altered. I used a photo spot light for the capture.

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever . . . it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
