Night Sky

I wake staring at night sky
on this sleepless night

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

Elegance

a pair of swans play
on calm waters of the bay
elegant splish splash

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

Spring Fling

Photo: Taken in my garden today. I didn’t do it, I promise. And that’s a clay pot. Who knows what else is under there!

 

forging a path through
no shrinking from adversity
tulips in the midst
of a glorious spring fling
gone are thoughts of winter
