Summertime… Long Past…

Trunk on the bank of the stream...

Sunday in the Retiro Park, Madrid

Night Heat

Dinosaurs used to sit under these, now we sit under them, who’ll sit under them in another 6 million years?


Retiro Park, twilight...

Muddy feet in the warm park twilight,
Fat shrill blackbirds pause on a post and take flight,
Lattice branches of interconnecting trees and last clinging leaves,
Shimmering stillness,
The network of energy that is the solid earth beneath my feet,
And the darkening sky above my head.
