As the trees shed leaves

So begins winter season

Birds sing renewal.

Art Prescription:  As we begin the season of Yin, going into the darker days, I have a sense of renewal. Cleaning the clutter from the year…preparing for the holidays and my open studio.

Hummingbirds fuel up

For their long fall migration

Lots of fall flowers.

Art Prescription:  I’m still seeing hummingbirds coming to fall blooms. They won’t be around for long as they prepare for migration.

Big song from tree tops

Hard to find this small warbler

Prothonotary!

Art Prescription:  Throughout our stay at Primland we kept hearing a distinct song in the tree-tops. Finally yesterday I got a view of this small warbler. It’s a guess, but

IIndex card Prothonotary think it’s a Prothonotary Warbler.

Beyond winter trees

Lies a view unseen until

Revealed by bareness.

Art Prescription:  Winter beauty.

Farm sanctuary

Fresh air, a religion

Horses my teachers.

Art Prescription:  I’ve spent much of my holiday time out at the farm. It occurs to me that I’m learning patience, tolerance, and that throwing bales of hay to horses is extremely therapeutic!! Lovely views…

Lean on me today

I will stand tall and strong now

Catch you if you fall.

Art Prescription:  This post is for my brother, who reminded me over the holidays that he is here for me. Through thick and thin he is there to lean on.
