    the side of a face
    the side of a leaf
    the side of a rose
    the side of a tree
    the side of a wind chime
    the side of a succulent

    the side of the setting sun
    casting long shadows
    and one last embrace
    before disappearing
    beyond the edge
    and all is veiled.


    Photo: A succulent plant with water droplet that hangs
    from a basket on my old termite ridden peach tree
    (sigh, so old and leafless this year, yet the woodpecker loves it),
    my side yard fence and sky reflected upside down in the droplet.
    Just before sunset, the best time for light in my backyard. iphone pic.
