“Autumn Romance” – ink pen on paper, 30x40cm, 2023
Autumn Romance

Two trees meeting
In autumn of their lives
Each with a decades growth of root work and branches
Each settled in their own ways
Yet, when they start dancing something deeper thrives
Two trees connecting
Carefully probing
Which parts of their root work they may combine
Which parts of their branches to interwine
Two trees falling in love
Longing for growth of even more branches
Together, somewhere down the line…
