Photo of the Day – May 17, 2012

Suddenly this defeat.
This rain.
The blues gone gray
And the browns gone gray
And yellow
A terrible amber.
In the cold streets
Your warm body.
In whatever room
Your warm body.
Among all the people
Your absence
The people who are always
Not you.
I have been easy with trees
Too long.
Too familiar with mountains.
Joy has been a habit.
Now
Suddenly
This rain.”
― Jack Gilbert

    • Thank you Scott, glad you enjoyed the image. This shot was proof to me that decent photos can be made even in the rain and gloom. Sometimes small details are more interesting than the scenery.
