first chirps of twilight

as day lingers into night –

spring rounds the corner

Thursday Doors.. Around Brooklyn

Coming to you from my archives🙂

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

Catholic Church

The first red one was taken in Manhattan. The others were taken around Brooklyn.

Cherish

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.

Prosery: Possibilities

Salty Soul

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

manners

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)

Sunflower – Tanka Tuesday

Sunflowers Backside🙂

big bold sunflowers

ambitiously cheerful blooms

dulls chill of winter

fuels my dreams of summer

even the buzz of their bees

For Cees Flower Of The Day

Hope

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.

standing alone
with hope for spring
a crocus flower
