Remnants and Reality





   


"At some point 
we become 
windows to the past, 
testaments to the future.
  
Beauty is found
in the marriage of both."

Muscle or Bone: Trees Endure...




I turn my nose up at winter, 
but force myself to walk 
in the snow. 

Trees endure. 
But are they happy?

Silence In Winter



There is a silence in winter that belies the brutality of its nature:   Unsettling beauty flows within.

Round Table Challenge Prompt: Cali-(k)nights



Photo: "The Last Trip" by Macro Art




Cali-(k)nights


San Andreas motif 
decked the walls.
(we were on a budget)
Highway 1 spooled 
across time.  Motel 
sheets served more 
than one purpose.

Luxury's an afterthought.   
The only thing better
than seven on the 
richter scale was
you swimming in 
Russian River red;
me, extra dry.
