Charcoal Flower-gardens



 Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own. ~CHARLES DICKENS~

 Pristine; pencil-patterns
Lure the wand’ ring eye
To charcoal flower-gardens
Etched against the sky

Nature spares not one season
But stuns our eager gaze
With beauty beyond reason
In rampant God-spun ways

The tree that bore bud-jewel
Then fanned the weary brow
Before its grand apparel
Fell, just before the snow…

…is not stripped, then forgotten
But spreads its filigree
Like charcoal flower-gardens
Across earth’s frozen lea

Hubby simply shakes his head when I laugh out loud in disbelief because a barren tree can be so breath-taking-ly beautiful!
