this cloud, generations old
cavalier cruelty has me bawling again
in search of air I walk to the park
no sign of the sun
yet, a toddler chases butterflies
In response to the theme this week over at Colleen’s for Tanka Tuesday is a quote offered by Merril
“How fare that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.”
– William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice.

An apartment building door.
Yep, that’s to a garden. Not attached to a fence. A fancy fenceless door. Odd!
I’ve never seen those on a door before, only on windows
The bottom of this door is down some steps.
That’s all for this week. Doorscursions in lockdown has been anemic at best. These I scored while on essential errands from the car.
For Norm’s Thursday Doors. To see other entries go
a slow dance
in a gentle breeze –
the flower celebrates morning

For Cee’s Flower Of The Day FOTD where leaves are also allowed. Although, I am thinking this leaf really crashed the party by growing through the middle of this allium. Another photo taken on my walk of someone else’s garden.
FOTD – May 21 – Bearded iris
For Cee’s Flower of the Day
CLEMATIS ‘Crystal Fountain’ (syn. ‘Fairy Blue’). Didn’t know the name, had to look it up😊
FOTD – May 20 – Bearded iris
On my walk this morning I saw this in a playground. It was closed to the public due to the pandemic.
For Cee’s Flower of The Day FOTD Challenge
Lina’s broom. An odd name but I like it. It lives in my garden where it’s doing battle with the Lilac and Hydrangea bush. It sits in the middle. All three of them sprawlers.. they’re working it out.
Here’s a picture of the same from last June. It’s well laden, in full bloom. I guess it starts now and just really fill out in a month or so.
