This Fight

in this fight
the bright treads lightly
sparing fools

enlightment a causualty
as ad hoc plans breeds havoc
vindictiveness clings to its perch

Ring-A-Ring-O-Roses!

wp-1585500268612.jpgI think it’s safe to say not enough is known about the corona virus. Is it airborne or contact or is it both? Also, it feels like there is a true “Typhoid Mary” element to this.
Does the strategies to contain this carry a hint of “ring a ring o roses, pocket full of posies…”?

We are flailing in the wind. There are believers and non believers. As the politicians do battle, argue, verbally assault each other – it does what it does. Kill people!

indiscrimate
pestilence on a rampage –
ring-a-ring-o-roses

Night Sky

I wake staring at night sky
on this sleepless night

in the cool darkness, a peace
a setting free of worries

Spread

This is a mural. I took this on the inside of a mall in Brooklyn.

This is growing on a part of the trunk of a tree. That yellow stuff is spreading. In person it looks a little gross. Not so much in a photo with a bit of editing.

This is another shot of another part of the same tree

inanimate –

being held in time by nature

an odd interplay
