When tree silhouettes grace the sky

Outlined against a pastel sky

the winter trees bring us back to the essential

and the rising moon teases the branch tips.

Like graceful dancers in flowing robes

The majestic Poplar tree plays ball with the moon

and the Cedar tree stretches its limbs against the sunset

Delicate tendrils pay homage to the earth.
