contented while asleep by alisinwonder contented while asleep by alisinwonder
outside, the landscape is asleep
covered in snow
- silent
the light so flat
deep winter sleep

i lay on the sofa
- reading
ella's voice from the speekers fills the room
i, read

you, are in the room
in front of the computer
- chatting

i, read
outside the landscape is asleep
- protected under the snow

i yawn
- shut the eyes
the book fells down from my lap
i fall asleep

outside, the landscape is silent
i, sleep

you, look up from the computer
you look at me
you raise
- hint of a smile on your face
you come and put a blanket around me

i, sleep
the landscape is asleep
it is quiet
- a dreamless sleep

~~~

winter sleep winter poem

~~~

reduction, yes. i'm very glad you like this one. it's from my first - and only ( :ashamed: ) -winter session out with the camera. the light was so flat and poor. i sharpened it up to indicate a drawing (like a whisper), but after posting it i see that it is "too much". do you agree, shoud i go back and un-sharp it a bit?

there is a certain harshness when it comes to winter - so i think it is alright the way it is !

i'm really glad you like it - i needed to take the camera out for a short session in the snow. days are short and light are poor, and there's been a long time (too long) since i've been out with the camera.

:hug: thank you so much, Lúcia. The days are so short and the light so flat up here in the north - but I needed to take the camera out and try to capture some winter scenes. Have a nice week, my friend (without snow, i guess ;) )

thank you so much for your kind words, Hugo. Not any help from the flat light outside - so I had to work with composition in this winter modus :heart:

Kind thanks, Richard. No help from the flat light, so I had to work with the composition in this winter modus. Glad you like the text, also. I'm not sure it can be called a poem, maybe a little allegory? I'm used to producing bureaucratic and academic texts - the written word is not "my cup up tea" in other contexts :)
