Thursday Doors – Around Brooklyn – Nostrand Ave

How would you like this to be a part of your room? Looks like the nursery ended up there. Note the child safety bars on the window. Wonder what the inside looks like..

Window on a church, not a door but I couldn’t resist, so beautiful.

The is first door with any interest I managed to get a shot of without the car behind me blowing it horn at me. Love the surround.

Couldn’t resist this one either. Look at the details in the architecture. You don’t want to see the doors now associated with these. It’s all modern day storefronts. I’ll spare your eyes…

And here are the other two doors I captured yesterday. Enjoy your holiday weekend everyone:) A good independence day to you.

Thursday Door

I was in Baltimore this past weekend. Behind the home that I stayed in was a lane. An honest to goodness lane! Most of the yards had an entry gate from it. One home actually fronted onto the lane. I was about to take a picture of it when a little old lady appeared to ask me why I was taking pictures. That halted my agenda. But she did go on to explain that her house, the very one, was built in 1925. And that the barn / garage was built in 1930. I felt busted when she asked, “why are you taking pictures”. I could only respond, “I take pictures of everything”. She explained that a crew had come through the day before to cut the grass and that there was some heavy equipment involved. She hoped I was a part of a crew coming to repave the lane. She turned out to be very nice. We chatted for a while.

By the way, how do you like that gate to nowhere, cool I thought. It’s just standing there, with age written all over it, going nowhere:) Love it!

Sidewalk Brawl

between two sparrows
a tumbling-mid-air-to-ground
brawl, a ruckus ploy

depleted, one pulls way back-
entranced, horn rouse me from wonder

Unswayed – A Tanka

behind those brown eyes
a sense of knowing – unswayed
by life’s indignities
she holds fast, mind still her own –
matter of independence

Standing Up

It was mid morning on a weekday.
I was working in my garden.
Doing battle, was more like it.
This unruly patch is the only green in this row of yards.
The grape is tangled with the honeysuckle.
Lina’s broom is on a surge for the sun while stiffling the lavendar.
When far away an interrupted cry.
It was the voice of a woman. I could hear the blows landing, and the rebuke with each blow. This, even after she had stopped crying out. A man’s voice, full of rage, blaming her for it all. She refused to give him the satisfaction of crying anymore.
He kept hitting her.
I couldn’t figure out which house this was coming from.
I felt helpless, pissed off and horrified all at once
Then there was a gurgly scream from him
Followed by silence.
