Winter Trees - Missoula,Montana

“…Leaves have been stripped like trials of love
Joy runs like a river under the fallow earth
You come back to me without aplomb
Compassion needs no justifications….

By the oak fire forgive
Your voice is a discreet candle
It's all inward though mountains laugh
Winter trees have a quiet beauty”

- From
Winter Trees by Joseph Narusiewicz
