Digital Whisper - Grandpa

A lifetime of memories written in the wrinkles on his face, this is someone's grandpa in some distant city.  Who knows the images captured by those weary blue eyes, and who knows what stories that battered hat could tell?  He sits on the corner with his cronies,  exchanging stories of what used to be, a cloud of pipe smoke encircling them all.

Three Muses - Wild Things

This might be titled "Concrete Jungle Reclaimed".   The background photo is of the abandoned Palace Theater in Gary, Indiana, taken by my daughter.  I've added the leopard and the vine.   Since the steel mills have closed in the 60's, steel workers left the city in droves, and much of what was once dubbed "The City of the Century" stands abandoned and falling into disrepair.  One can almost imagine it will one day revert to a jungle like the ancient city of Angkor Wat in the jungles of Cambodia.

Digital Whisper - Umbrella

 I sailed an orange umbrella
In a dark and driving rain
My squadron sailed behind me
Above the bounding main
Fate looked grim and fearsome
For my hearty mates and me
I was happy when I woke up
It was all a dream, you see.
