Bare tree silhouettes

Tree silhouette on snowy hill

Winter's evening with silhouette of trees

After the falling of their leaves,
trees are laid bare for all to see,
their structure of trunk and elegant branches.
Do they feel the cold, so bare and desolate?
Is the snow their friend or foe?
They don't whine or rant,
or seem embarrassed in their naked state,
but stately stand,
 firmly rooted in frozen ground.
