tin man


as rain seizes
the empty tin man

the forest claims
a rusty water
can.

  6. Very good, from my experience a forest, especially a rainforest will claims everything.
    Thanks for visiting my blog, and no, no sarcasm intended.

  11. I won't be surprised that one day the can will stand unnoticed amongst the evergreen wildlife. A short yet realistic take on the lovely image.

  17. I thought I saw the tin man, the first time I looked. But, the second time I found just an old woman with a story to tell. I like the Tim Man and the reclaiming.
