Anti-Aquarium

“Fish, colourful and swift, looks life a beautiful gift
Sometimes bold, sometimes shy, Sweeps quick as if wishes to fly…”

V.P. Mahur

Careful lest ye find oneself in an aquarium or worse be the creator of aquariums for others……

Flowers vs. spray paint

Today, while searching out a tradesman in an area full of vacant buildings, I came upon the usual ‘art’..tedious expressions I tire of seeing…reflections less of rebellion or creativity than self imposed ostracism and purposeful assault. But, that is another story.

No, I was at a dead end, surrounded by vacant buildings, abandoned and tired looking. There in a plot of dry, overgrown dirt nudged up against an old telephone pole was an effort by another type of artists, whose hands I doubt had touched a spray can of late. Flowers blooming, unattended, surviving with vivid contrast to asphalt, concrete, weeds and broken windows. Beauty surviving amidst the negative vibes. Nice

Rejection………

“Because I liked you better
Than suits a man to say,
It irked you, and I promised
I’d throw the thought away.

To put the world between us
We parted stiff and dry:
‘Farewell,’ said you, ‘forget me.’
‘Fare well, I will,’ said I.

If e’er, where clover whitens
The dead man’s knoll, you pass,

Halt by the headstone shading
The heart you have not stirred,
And say the lad that loved you
Was one that kept his word.”

A.E. Housman, A Shropshire Lad

Solitude on the bank…

“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.”
Aristotle

Solitude, no traffic noise…no people, a few flitting birds…only the sliding, bubbling sound of the river…sitting entranced by the currents moving to the contours and boulders below…leaves drifting on the surface..lost in thought, a chance to stand up with a positive view.
