Watercolor "Cedar Tree" by djl 2008
Wrapped in the greenery of forest ferns and bountiful tree-ery, finest feathered cedar boughs loop above, below, around the Douglas Fir and Spruce of blue, the Maple leaves and nettle shoots, rotted logs long fallen down; and then I find I'm not alone, but in the company of silent giants next to me, who witnessed much this hundred years -- birth and death, storms and fire, holding heavy ice and snow, the old that die, the young that grow. Yet on clear nights of fullest moon, the forest in her silver gown, becomes a vision , a haunting tune of violin; lifting up and folding down, the white owl's wings upon her limb.

|I love your artwork as well as your poetry the light that splinters through to the cedar works for me.|

|Mind's eye opens upon the brush strokes of your painting words. But the other side of the canvus wet with stain is where you enticed me again. That is where the haunting began. Don't scare me like that Diana. Lol
Beautiful piece of poetry my friend DJL.

|I love the forest and its mysteries. Your poem reminds me of Longfellow's Evangeline.
" Covered in moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight,
stand like Druids of eld, with beards that rest on their bosoms,
stand like Harpers' hoar…”

|Extraordinary in its fusion of man made beauty and nature's natural penchant for the lovely. Bringing elegance not often portrayed in the mulch of past life/death cycles to a layered canvas of images that once dry in your continually evolving sense of life, begged for further layers of emotional pigment and synaptic resolve. I only wish I could capture the complexities of life and present them in the simple tapestry of connecting thread to needle's divine guidance and you do.|

|Diana, THIS is magnificent. You wrapped the forest up in your expert and poetical way which had me leaning forward as I read each line. I love all the color, the musing, and bestest of all . . . The white owl. Yesssss!|
