August Day

It is early morning and the splash of color in the sky – a gift of sunrise. This second august day is cooler, more breathable than in previous days. It seems that autumn has stuck it’s big toe in.

I know it’s still a bit early for this but images of autumn leaves surfing crisp cool air fill my head. As I pass an especially woodsy area of this park, there is a steady breeze.

This is enough for a pause with outstretched arms, head tilted back and eyes closed, regardless of who is watching.



cool, breezy morning
hosts lively russle of leaves –
hints of autumn

Thursday Doors – Around Brooklyn

A closer shot of the entrance below
In my mind, a mini mansion
A craftsman, I think. .I was always in love with this house because of the fire place. There was another one further down this street. That is now demolished and an apartment building now stands there.
A church entrance. They are working on it.
Another one
This one is an apartment building entrance

I forget how many floors this one had. Love the details here.

FOTD – Persian Silk/ Mimosa Tree

Persian Silk

I’ve never seen this one before. It wasn’t in the park but on that island in the middle of the street. Beautiful!

Giant Hostas

Just how much bigger is this hosta going to get! It was a huge canopy for a family of kittens last year. I would just hear them. None this year yet.

Over Time

I never could see my life without him
But there stood this broken trust

Shoving past all that I had come to know would only lead to regrets piled atop regrets –
never again feeling safe

As great as this love was
I knew me
It would not end well
So, I let it go in the most awful way
Never to see, or speak to him for ever
Time is not always the healer
she purports to be
Years later when we could again speak
He asked.
I explained.
That was not about you, I said.
That was about keeping that thread I was hanging by intact.

Downpour

quieting the dust

dragged by the wind off parched earth
a thunderous downpour
