Colonnade

Fernando and Pedro walked the boardwalk with a colonnade of condos on their left and the ocean on their right. They stopped at a mural. The artist painted a somber woman with an orange and gold halo walking past an archway.

Fernando remarked, “There comes a time in one’s life when one reaches the age of reason. One only wants the best. And then one wants to give it all away.”

Pedro asked, “And what if we never reach that age?”

In the warm winter winds  they admired the mural of that woman.

“Ah! But what if we do?”

Today — #writephoto

What words appear to lead me on my way?
Not one? But I need none to praise this wondrous day.

Dusk — #writephoto

Although the sky comes dressed in clouds
The Sun remains above.
Although the blue stays far away
There’s nothing there but love.
