Unnatural Patterns

Linked to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge with the theme unnatural patterns. I suppose there is something natural about these patterns, but I would not expect to find them on a walk in the woods.

Flowers

Rebirth and Remembrance

 
The morning Sun begins to rise
As dawn rebirths the light.
Those colors I remember well.
They leave the dark with night.

When I awake I sense surprise -
Another day to see,
Another chance to get it right
Or not if that should be.

Easter Morning

The Beauty of Spring

 
Enough already. Spring is here.
Forget cold winter blues.
Warm with joy to what comes near
And cherish what you choose.

Spring and Blue

State of the Art

 
As long as it’s impossible
I’ll try it if you ask.
Guide my hands and calm my mind
And carry out the task.

Linked to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge with the theme “state of the art”. I offer photos of what might be considered, perhaps not by the lizards, as state of the art lizard living quarters.

Urban Sunrise

Written in Stone

The gargoyles know about this place,
This lookout for the lucky birds.
Elaborately simple grace
Can feel the meaning of the words.

Technology: Chisel

Brad knew he didn’t have the proper tools to do the job right, but he rarely did. The door and opener cost under $50. He’d reuse the old hinges.

He did have to buy a chisel. They told him he couldn’t return it when he was done. He could live with that.

After sort of measuring everything, he realized it wasn’t as easy as he thought to carve out where the hinges should go.

Eventually in spite of everything he hung the door.

Happy wife happy life: she was happy. For the most part the new door even closed.
