The trees sleep in winter, as we ourselves will sleep,
A cold white silence covers their limbs,
Although their pattern lingers in the streetscape ever varied.
None one sees the silence of bones that are sleeping.

Among the things that my laziness and lack of focus have kept me from doing is writing poems for selected photos. This poem is somewhat in the style of classical Chinese poetry, as translated, but with a modern and metaphysical element.

Reactions are most welcome.

Always view all photos in Gallery or Original Size

The poetry wants to influence what I can see in the image. I'd rather not read your poems, and just let the photo, it's subject... speak for itself.

In this image, while the tree is foreground... I feel that the real subject is the building behind. But I can't say there's anything captivating there. Nothing really brings me back to take another look.
