1421


'Trinidad Guardian' car park, Port of Spain

squatting
the frog observes
the clouds
--Chiyo ni(1703-1775)

for a while roof tops fitted
the face of closed car windows

Nice photo - it looks like a postcard from a tropical haven, an azure sky and palms. A place to escape with the warm tradewinds keeping us warm from a snowy northern climate...

Magyar said...

Gillena, I often err.

First I read, the -fog- observes;
secondly I read, as it is; the -frog- observes.

Either, may carry its own story and truisms.

Lovely... beyond doubt. _m
