No Direction

no direction to the light
in this snowstorm in these woods
no strength for the shadow
no black for the crow
no color, but for this cardinal
balanced on a thin branch

This is wonderful. I really like the line "no strength for the shadows"; a great follow to the previous image. Is this one of your photographs?
