Clustered branches on trees still bare
of the season’s foliage stripped and spare
but for stick figures on a tangled mass of limbs
looking undressed where none can hide.
The morning light and heat from the sun
warms what was clothed under a wintry sky.

I took this shot early in the morning about a couple of weeks ago in my back yard when the sun was just coming up. Cropping and cutting out a part of the houses in the picture helped to give it more emphasis on only the trees and the sky. We now have new buds and small leaves forming on the same trees because of our much warmer weather.
