January Trees

Branches sway in the dark cold breeze Moving like they were in a freeze Colorful they once were Their beauty puts me on my knees Never did they want to displease Dormant they are for sure

    Beautiful, Russell. I like "never did they want to displease". So aim to please. The nature of our universe! Enjoyed.
