puddles on the grass -
a carrion crow drinks
from its reflection.

I like this very much Juliet - I wonder if it sees its reflection.

'carrion on' after yours...

from its reflection
a cloud drifts and floats in time

Juliet, this is beautiful, i love the image is conjures. I like the idea of the tree year, trees are some of my most favourite things. I love walking in the soods and noticing the changes in the trees, as the months pass by. Happy New Year wishes to you.x
