There is a tendency to look at the "pretty" things: the fresh green leaves, the dewy flowers, the blue skies and billowing clouds. Sometimes, though, I stop to look at things falling apart.

Like these dead branches and stumps.

Pine tree, crumbling but still standing.

Stump, spilling its innards,

Dead stick and cones in the duff.


Acostumbramos mirar las cosas bellas: las hojas nuevas, verdes; las flores con sus colores frescas, el cielo azul y las nubes blancas, como almohadas. Pero de vez en cuando se me ocurre fijarme en cosas que se están desbaratando.

Como estos troncos y palos muertos.

  1. The dead and decaying materials are better habitat for the most part.

    Thanks for the post.


I'm having to moderate all comments because Blogger seems to have a problem notifying me. Sorry about that. I will review them several times daily, though, until this issue is fixed.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
