A day in midwinter. In a nutshell: neither blue nor grey, nothing of note to remember it by. Until.

a nameless brook
yet the need to know
this bird by its song

A mere silhouette glimpsed at last between the leafless staves, but the music is plump of breast and brightly plumed. Strange to the ear. A skiff of notes plucked here from joy and there from sadness. Until.

wind through the pines…
the what and why
of who I am
