Branches were bare

“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. IMG_5307But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person died for no reason.”
― Ernest HemingwayA Moveable FeastIMG_5308

    Genius words. Sorrow has a way of writing the most eloquent phrases my friend. I thank you kindly for coming to visit my post; may peace reign in all of our minds and hearts…oh how I extend my heart to you! Anita

    • So nice to receive your comments, it means so much, especially from you, as there are hints in your blog that you have suffered loss and understand it at its root, but you also have found a path back to joy and love of beauty and life… Jayne
