no trespassing


I sneak into your garden

to eat arena berries.

(Please keep yourself hidden

until I go away!)

During a recent photo walk, I found myself ignoring a “no trespassing” sign while silently rehearsing innocent detail.  If I had not been somewhat oppositional, I would have missed this interesting chair being re-weaved by nature as well as a water lily pond and a kingfisher. Much the same as Ryokan, 190+ years ago, I found myself hoping the homeowners would keep themselves hidden until I went away.


    1. I’ve followed your blog for awhile and to receive an “excellent” comment from you just made my day. 🙂 Thank you, Joshi.

    1. Please accept my apology…the image quality just didn’t work for me after I posted so I deleted the post. It was an “oddball” image of a creeping plant with runners that resembled a telephone cord.
