Christmas Eve in Sweden

One shade of blue for water, one for ice,
Another blue for shadows over snow.
The clear or cloudy sky uses blue twice-
Both different blues. And hills row after row
Are colored blue according to how far.
You know the bluejay’s double-blur device
Shows best when there are no green leaves to show.
And Sirius is a winterbluegreen star.
Blue Winter by Robert Francis

  1. Beautiful captured, especially the special mood and perfect with the poem, Hanna. I am glad that our paths have crossed virtually and I look forward to more of your wonderful art. Have an inspiring as well wonderful new year. All the best for 2019!

    • Thanks a lot for your lovely words, Stefan!!!
      I find the mood important because of the feast or the celebration, if you like. The bright crack in the clouds to the north is almost symbolic of the Bethlehem ⭐
      Though the lovely thing about pictures is that you can interpret them as you like.
      I wish you lots of happiness in 2019.
      All the best,
      Hanna

    • Thanks a lot, Richard. It’s always a pleasure to find motives in nature because you have to go out and search for them. The same goes with poetry 🙂
      The Christmas was a lovely event worth remembering.
      I wish you a wonderful New Year too!!!

    • Thank you so much for that, Resa. Sweden is just around the corner but the landscape is spectacular different.
