from black forest, germany


freudenstadt, 01.12.12

in the last minutes of dusk
we wander out -
satisfying out senses with
the soft crunch of white underfoot,
in the powdery ice on our tongues, melting,
the quiet bird-less whispers
of around us,
trees so black
and cream frosted,
fingers freezing,
babe humming -
lovers, us,
laughing -
winter is here
and we are celebrating
the white mysteries,
cool covering,
foreign,
frozen-benched,
snowballing...

  2. My mother's family is German. These past few months, Tim and I have been talking about living in Germany... How beautiful it is. I hope your time is restorative. I received your cards and wee teacup pin in the mail this past week. So very, very lovely! Thank you, my friend.

  8. It's all so magical, snowy, crisp, cold, mysterious and beautiful. But the seventh photo evokes the spirit of Christmas most to me - a young mother with her first born son.

  9. So very beautiful... and gosh, must be chilly. Far cry from what Australia is like right now! :)

  10. Beautiful dreamy photos! Every single one. Little Reu is so handsome- I can't believe how much older he looks... less baby and more boy :)
