Stark Winter Secret

This is a hot wax on paper bag collage I did in the fall. The images have stayed in my mind and writing the haiku was helpful in expressing what I thought.

Cold limb creaking-bare
Stark tree swears new leaf inside
Bare nature in code.

Wow, this is great! I must learn to work with wax this year. What is the process here?

Your imagery in words and picture is very good. Nice use of color, thought-provoking, draws in the reader and the viewer. I'd like to know more about the collage work. Nice job.

I love both your haiku and your journalled piece.
Wax technique is something I have yet to attempt.

Everything in your image is so balanced, elljay! I love the red leave in the center, and that bare tree in the sky.
