holding a bouquet of lavender in one hand

a camera in the other . taking in the silence

drenched in northern light on a winter afternoon

that whispers spring promise

Lavender, winter, spring promise... indeed the fourth is northern light. There cannot be anything better to add to the quartet.

Your poetic post reminded me of Knut Hamsun and his novel Under the Autumn Star. Awesome. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knut_Hamsun
