Purple Ribbons


“Long yellow rushes bending
above the white snow patches;
purple and gold ribbon
of the distant wood:
what an angle you make with each other as
you lie there in contemplation.”
–   William Carlos Williams

  1. No ribbons of blue OR purple today, Nancy, at least not here. It’s all white…but the wind hasn’t started. Yet. Lots of birds still, filling up before nightfall.

  2. As they lay there in contemplation…..now that is a grand statement. I read that to mean…where shall we grow next, will we be neighbors next time, and where will our children( seeds) be? They have a lot to contemplate during the resting season.

  3. I just love the way you “look” at your landscape whether it is winter or summer. I see these things often but my photography skills are not so good. I do so enjoy your talent.

I appreciate and welcome your comments!
