Carpe Diem Utabukuro #4 tears falling

It in no way felt like the end was near.  As it turned out I had pried his last words from him.
“Pop, I’m going to Vegas, wish me luck”, no response.
“Pops did you hear what I said?”, I asked.
After a while he answered, “Ookay”.

I headed for the airport and was on the way to the terminal gate. Then came the call. My mirror image had passed on.

I couldn’t look at him in that box
ashes to ashes

WP Weekly Photo Challenge: Door

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Door.”

IMG_8087 door to storage

The coolest door I have ever seen. It’s at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens

door

This door is in Bed Stuy Brooklyn, I forget where. But it’s the entrance to a multifamily building 4 or 6 stories I think.

IMG_4583 door 2

This door is to a resturant on 42nd Street in Manhattan. It is or was the service entrance, it’s brass and I think it was the Russian Tea Room. Yep! The Russian Tea Room, I just looked it up.

and balancing on petals

Butterflies:

folding
and unfolding
the silent clap of a butterfly

Summer morning:

summer sun
all in her eyes
the ocean, sand and nudity!

Rainy season:

May rains drop
the bamboo fence
free from termites plaster

(c) Adjei

Rainbow:

the rain
and his so-called bowl
little kids argued all day
