Democracy

flag 7 good

on the march through time
a complicated history
dreams morph to nightmares –

these tangled footprints still lures
in dreams in faraway lands

Belching Dragon

Wild fire roars through the hillside
Lick of flames releasing crumbling embers skyward like a belching dragon
With cinders on the fly furthering its cause

wild fire smoulders
flames refuse to be subduded –
nature’s wildest child

stoked by whipping winds fury
on insatible rampage

Catching Raindrops

As winter gray rules the sky, a young family walks quickly down the sidewalk, Anxious to retreat from looming rain. First drops make contact – mom’s footsteps quicken. Facinated by the fat splat to his forehead the toddler breaks the pace.

arms outstretched

palms skyward,
a new distraction

catching raindrops –
the razzle dazzle
of it all!

Thursday Doors Year End Recap

The Yacht Club inManhattan

In Park slope, Brooklyn

St Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan

Brooklyn Public Library in Cadman Plaza Brooklyn

I was in Chinatown yesterday when I saw this building. I stopped, backed up and got this shot.

well, digging through my stash of doors I found this gem for Norm’s Thursday Doors this week. To be honest, I don’t remember where I took this one. I think it was in Manhattan on the lower east side. But, I am loving it! Check out the window flower box on the ledge above, cute, right!

These were taken in the Grand Army Plaza area of Brooklyn yesterday while I was on the hunt for street murals. The one above is of a synogue and the other two are apartment building entrances.

The view from the back of the is house is off the Promonade and a spectacular close up view of Manhattan

Photos taken in Skagway Alaska. The number on this building is not necessarily the street address but rather, the year it was built. This place is amazing!!
