Help & Smile

I can’t help but smile

when I think of you – long walks

sharing hopes and dreams

your help as the waves claimed sand

beneath my feet, I felt safe

Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge

I wouldn’t put this in the oddball, more in the different and eye catching category. I stood there for a while just taking it in.
This was on the grounds of the Embassy for Indonesia in Washington, DC.
If anyone knows the symbolism please share.

The red circles twirl in the wind. It must be something to see on a windy day! Right in front of this is a bus stop. So it entertains the travellers:)

Thursday Doors

I was wandering around in Park Slope today.the home of brownstones with interesting archetectural features…Everyone I go by this one I wonder what they use this room for, besides a sun room that is.

Maybe it’s an office, it’s just so exposed. Just below that fence is the sidewalk, then a narrow street.

..and interesting doors

Except for this one that I captured in another neighborhood.

On this one, the top looked better than the door.

Rainy Days

wind starts door creaking
curtains billow through windows
dust from parched earth rise
as gray skies give way, raindrops
clamor – kids on porch with friends

OR

wind starts door creaking
curtains billow through windows
dust from parched earth rise
kids on the  porch with their friends
paper boats in hand, pure joy
