spring nights

tires crunch
breaking ice
and the 4 am silence

smoke floats
and papers fly
out the driver side window

  2. Brother Ollie,

    Still a little way to go, to be entirely rid of the wintry presence..The ice under foot and tire. Smoke hanging in the early morning gloom...Spring gets a little more comfortable, as April approaches..

  4. Vivid depiction. So sad -- no one there to help? Alone.

  6. 4 am is a beautiful time to pray but only if you are at peace and are used to waking so early, and when silence speaks we hear God's voice

  9. Our winter is melting into spring and the silence has given way to birdsong...now for some warmer air and frogs at night.

  10. I know you still have snow though it is technically spring. Such a long winter. No wonder the Tired Monk is tired, delivering papers at four a.m. Smiles. You are such a good man, Ollie.

  12. One can only hope for a warmer tomorrow. Short & crisp. I enjoyed the minimalistic expressions. Happy Easter!

  13. This paints such a vivid vignette one can almost hear that paper hit the curb :-)

  14. "Papers fly.." am trying to figure that out..I see a tragedy, an accident...but maybe that's not what you are writing about. Interesting!
