looking south


Lifting my head from letter writing, my eyes are drawn to glimpses of bright but long low rays of sunshine crossing the yard, breaking through the neighbour’s dense row of trees along the south side of our property. With few south-facing windows, this view appears magical even through dirty glass. There stands one of the last trees around here still with leaves, glowing yellow as if in competition with the sun, that sun which is lowering ever more in the sky as it approaches the winter solstice.
