weekly photo challenge: magic

Turning Away, Turning Toward                                                                                                               

These golden days of summer

grow threadbare with the first

tattered browns of autumn.

Everything green begins to sink

back into the earth

with seeming ease and abandon.

Tall, stiff stems bend low,

grasses lie down in surrender,

and the last of the harvest laughs

at the settled winter to come.

Discarded

This section of railroad tracks is from a small rural community in eastern Wyoming…as we wandered through this part of America, it  was not uncommon to see abandoned buildings which seem to be symbolic of discarded hopes and dreams.
