Wind

 
wind wages war, wounding witnesses
whacking windows with warning
whistling wild words without wisdom

wrought with weary
wandering white woods
woman weeps with woe
wrestling winters wrath
wincing while winds whips
wielding welts

whispers withdraw, warm within
wishing, watching, waiting
wondering what's worse

  8. There is something so serenely beautiful about snow on the branches of a large tree. Lovely shot with the juxtaposition of the rigid tree against the soft snow.
