Inky wind

"...the wind's numerous hands
in the orchard unfastening
first the petals from the buds,
then the perfume from the flesh..."

From "Black Petal" by Li-Young Lee

This is another one of those images where I look at it and sigh thinking if I could only paint as well as that image. So, I will just SIGH.

Splendid use of shadow to evoke.
