Hiemsian Signs: A #writephoto #haibun

distant-lights

 

 

above the clouds

and city lights

mountain

a sunset defused

by gathered clouds

 

 

And we gathered by fading light. Watching the leaves turn at last. Hoping to make our last stand against the coming winter. What can we do but fall before the advancing cold and snow. Even our highest ground succumbs to ensnaring clouds that warp the light of the setting sun. How long before the snow that buries us falls?

 

 

enshadowed land

the illusion of light

from a blue sky

only a matter of time

before the last daylight fades
