Time – Abhanga

here in this morning breeze

a flurry of blossoms

afloat, pleasing balsam

whose time has come

I couldn’t get a full shot of this one, even if I had gone up on that tiny porch.(Avenue J) And that was a no no.

In Park Slope

On Bedford Ave I think. I love that they went all-in with the red🙂

You

I keep you

deep in my heart

you waltzed in

curled up

and never left

ever so often

I find myself hiding you

in my poetry

yes – I do keep you

deep in my heart

Elm – Flower of the Day

I think it’s a flower, looks more like buds on the way to being something fancy.

spring has sprung

no cherry blossoms yet

but everything else

wears a knowing smile

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.
