Apt building entrance Eastern Pkway , Brooklyn
Lower Manhattan, E30 the Street
Apartment building in Empire Blvd. Weird how I can look at these and remember where they were taken.
This one is pretty cluttered with all that’s going on, but I really like it. Reminds me of my room🙂. This was taken in Flatbush Ave.
Residence in Park Slope
The first red one was taken in Manhattan. The others were taken around Brooklyn.

I prefer keeping in mind even the possibility that existence has its own reason for being.
Even for those immeasurably flawed.
I know enough of the world to recognize I know nothing about why I am.
The inkling that flits through my consciousness from time to time says that cherishing the next breath, is the only moment of any consequence.
Worldly goods are just that..worldly.
They will still be such way after my time has come, and the worms are having their way with me.
Or, if I were bold enough, long after I’ve been scattered to the wind.
For dVerse Poets Pub where Merril is hosting and the prompt is to include the lines below in a piece of prose.
“I prefer keeping in mind even the possibility that existence has its own reason for being.”

This human being is a salty soul
Anything adversarial was always
just a blip to be dealt with
There was no time for foolishness
because she had four children to
feed, educate and school in
Her moves were well thought out
and always deeply rooted in hope
Yes, this ‘every woman’,
this human being is a salty soul.
(For my Mom)
nature placing stamp on time
flourish at days end
For Eugis weekly prompt
This last door is if a private house. The others were of apartment buildings around Brooklyn.

big bold sunflowers
ambitiously cheerful blooms
dulls chill of winter
fuels my dreams of summer
even the buzz of their bees
For Tanka Tuesday over at Colleens where the prompt words are synonyms for Eager & Hope
Eager : I used Cheerful

For Cees Flower Of The Day
On my walk this morning through the neighborhood I came upon this scene. Nestled in the barely there grass, near to the concrete edge of the sidewalk was this hint of purple. Wow! Why are you all alone? I wondered out loud. Yes, I was talking to the flower. I could just imagine what the homeowner was thinking had they witnessed this scene. Fool headed.. they might say.
with hope for spring
a crocus flower
