Winter Roses

Winter Roses brittle..

Petal drops begun

Fading out Majestic

Basked in Frosted sun

Martin McDonnell 2015

In this experimental piece, made with crayon and paint over a photograph print, the poem and image were both inspired by each other.

Rook and Ruin

I feel the weight

I feel the wait

Knowing it comes

But a surprise

After all.

(M.McDonnell, 2015)
