Flower of The Day

On my walk a few days ago I saw this on a sidewalk. It looked recent, but it wasn’t. This is an image with deep grooves. It looks like someone had taken the time to do this while the concrete was still wet. Usually, when I see these, it amounts to a stained imprint. This wasn’t that.

there it was

living a life held in time –

a once lively sprig

Still Life

(not mine)

this ghostly remains

now a part of the landscape –

new life, as still life

For Colleens Tanka Tuesday where this week we are using this photo to write an Ekphrastic Poem. I kept it short.

Amidst decay, there can still be beauty as nature plays her part.
