Falling on the Dreams of Whitney Avenue

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Hanging in There” – Whitney Avenue – Wilkinsburg, PA – First accumulating snow of 2013…

The evening snow is a deep hue of blue…
Falling on the houses of Whitney Avenue…
Falling on my hands and falling on my head…
Falling on the dreams of those still in bed…

Underneath the snow the spring bulbs grow…
When the flakes melt the magic will flow…
Magic that falls from the heavens above…
Snow covered setting among the rising love…

Silent night among the cold white sights…
Shadows of blue among orange highlights…
Winter snowflakes flutter around…
Settle like seeds without making a sound…

Seeds spread out across frozen land…
Waiting for spring till they grow up grand…
Growing up tall for the whole world to see…
A healthy garden is one that grows me…

Value Hue or Shade

The last of the snow clings to the shadows…
Shadows of winter that always face north…
As the shadows fade with the end of winter…
Spring and its flowers begin to push forth…

Take your time to observe your surrounding…
Natures beauty never fails to awe and inspire…
Even in winter when you look you will find…
A minimalist landscape for your artistic desire…

Black and white make colors seem bright…
When mixed together they neutralize and fade…
Who wants to be just another neutral gray…
When you can be color in any value, hue or shade…
