midwinter

midwinter s

this persistent grey
magnifies the compressed dark–
dawn heavy with dusk

squirrels search for buried treasure–
seeds in wait for light’s return

For Frank Tassone’s #Haikai Challenge #117.  I was going to do a completely different collage, but once I pulled out the handmade paper, I decided that stitching some together was what was needed.  I haven’t done any stitching for awhile, and it was good to get back to it.

The squirrels have been very busy lately.
