stopping by woods on a snowy evening

Whose woods these are, I think I know.

Unchanged, but not the same.



The blanket unfurled, its downy pillows clinging to branch and bough.


Whose woods these are, I think I know.


The balsam a balm for the aches and the weariness.



These woods, they are mine.

Yet they don't belong to me.


I claim them from memory, from sentiment.



From geography, from time.



This snowy evening, in this remote place


On this tiny speck in an infinite universe



They are mine.

SOO beautiful - woods, snow and photography. Thanks so much, Sharon, for sharing your woods with us.
Makes me so homesick for my two teenage years in Finland.

I think these pictures are beyond phenomenal! I love the outdoors, and the photographer, so that's my bias, but I'm just saying...
