One of a kind


If you asked for a chocolate, but got only the lemons – grimaced, teeth set on edge - keep on walking on the curb, bypassing the debris of the construction area – open unpaved road/skin, wind world wide…

‘corn candy hot tube’,- he’s saying distinctly and point in a new school’s direction, red with orange blues leaves installation,
‘so they’ll melt then…why?’ – she shrugs, hands endless in air.

The sun highlighting preschooler’s smile, and nearby cloud become a face of someone familiar from afar…

Enchanted road!  See! – the staring deer, not asking for tickets yet; a turkey, crossing the road in a rush; a dog on the grass – the face sealed with white royal stamp, - hosting the morning,  his invisible human stopped him from ranting…

The trees whispering fall foliage forecast, - still time to change…
The mystery lives just next to my neighborhood –

Nature and human
Vulnerable, wise
One of a kind.

  4. I love the thought of living in proximity of nature.. I think we always do, why should we believe that the soil is far even from concrete?

  11. Surreal. If I got lemons when I asked for chocolate, all the rest might occur ... definitely enchanted.

  12. This to me was the morning seen through the eyes of a child, both good and bad, while he/she takes it all in reacts differently as his minds sucks it all in.

  14. Last week, drove past a field where a flock (?) of wild turkeys were grazing, picking at the last of harvested grain. It is so good to be close to nature and to pay such attention to it. Hayes Spencer is Kanzensakura
