Good Morning Sunshine! The Woodland Orchard.

Love old woodland orchards, those hiding in the woods are most marvelous. Forgotten but still bearing fruit for the wanderer to find. You have to eat around the worm holes when you have them, ignore the scabs.

THE WOODLAND ORCHARD BY ROBERT P T COFFIN

These apple trees were lost for good

When the little house which stood

Nearby to keep them safe and sound

Sank moldering into the ground

And the children went away.

The waiting forest won the day,

And came and took the orphaned trees

Upon its dark and kindly knees.

The sun comes down more golden here

Than it comes ever in the clear;

The grass is greener for the wall

Of forest round it all,

There is no feet to tramp it down,

Except the little ones in brown

Beneath a deer that comes to stand

And wonder at this tame, sweet land.

You might say this was a spot

Where tame and wild for once forgot

Their old hate; the partridge feeds

On fruit sprung of men’s tender seeds

And pecks the apples touched by frost.

But these are trees that have been lost;

Here one draws a careful breath,

The loveliness is so like death.

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
