Lorca's oranges

"Quiero vivir sin verme.
Y hormigas y vilanos,
Sonaré que son mis
hojas y mis pàjaros."*

[*3rd verse from "Cancion del naranjo seco" by Federico Garcia LORCA (1898-1936)]

gathering fresh moss...

through frosty grass and icy rocks to come upon the lone tree
an ancient japanese maple with a hundred mossy branches
reaching up gnarly and menacing...
below its thick trunk beats a mossy heart lying in a bed of fallen leaves glistening red as drying blood...
