All moving things

come to an end:

a knotty willow.

100 days…65th day

The colors of the flowers fade

as the long rain fall,

as lost in thought,

I grow older.

weekly photo challenge: pure

Jen’s photo challenge for this week is to “share a photo of something pure…Pure can convey wholesomeness, something undiluted, or simplicity.”

The fireflies light

How easily it goes on

How easily it goes out again

Sunset 

 

sunset…

on the road through the clouds

is there a short cut

to the summer moon?

blur into dusk

shadows from a lingering sun

blur into dusk-

falling cherry petals
