in winter, while balancing on a milk can,

does farm equipment dream
of turning fields of green?

A beautiful image and an interesting question. Does the equipment hibernate during winter?

Steffe said...

Probably not. They are just bored I think.

Your thoughts lean more and more toward spring. Ah, spring! Come on, spring!

Cezar and Léia said...

I guess "yes", because to rest there all winter looks bored.It's time for work, for exercise themselves, for new adventures! :)

wow, this picture is fantastic, I really loved your composition!

You hit the nail on the head with the poem. That's an old hay rake. Horses use to pull them around here. I have pitchforked many a load of hay raked into wind rows. That wasn't much fun.

Maybe they dream of turning over a new leaf.

The equipment is probably dreaming of a warm place to rest.

Maybe it just dreams of being free of the milk can and rolling down the hill.
My back is bruised and very painful, I can't sit for any length of time.

Animate and inanimate...we all dream of spring.

Oh yes, I'm sure it does! But then again, I'm a personifier. Lovely words, as usual-- capturing the essence of the photo.

Farm equipment in Vermont dreams of moving south to Florida! Sheesh! And what he H are you doing out in the snow and ice balancing on a milk can.

Milk can? You still have those up thar?

Will you please take care of yourself. This is a very excellent photo in all respects, but...

What an interesting thought! My husband grew up on a farm and he would probably think they do!

"Objets inanimés, avez vous donc une âme?.."
"Things, do you have a soul?.." asked a french philosoper...If they have a soul, they can dream, and have the right to keep their dreams secret...

Nice shot.

It is not easy to awnser.Interesting question.

Magpie said...

Great shot and great question...I choose to believe they need to feel useful.

I find it hard to give anthropomorphic qualities to farm equipment but we, the people who made it, can dream. I'm guessing this piece is an antique but it reminds us of the change to come soon.

Your photos and text give me chills and it's NOT because of the snow. You have tremendous gifts my dear friend. I hope and pray you are recovering and feeling like yourself soon!

very artsy image. it is hard to believe that you still have snow. I look at some of the snow photos and they look so elegant but I can't imagine seeing snow everyday.

This picture has a timeless quality to it, probably the old equipment, but also the muted colors. Nice composition.

I like the way the hay rake is set between the two trees and the milk can acting almost as a fulcrum. Yankee ingenuity at work.

Nice photo.
