Winter.

A long, active life – lived to good purpose.

The proof in scars.

A dipping sun gilds fragile bones.

Awkwardly set, but clinging yet.

To this worldly thread.

Brave. Upright.

An iron will holds failing parts.

With fixed stare that daren’t fall.

To the creeping gloom.

  1. Love the dedication to your Dad 🙂

    • Thank you, Linda. So nice of you to stop by! I had no idea such a simple photo would elicit such a deep description, but I guess that’s that way art goes. Best regards, P. 🙂
