stark against the sky…

gray arms reaching out

for life, too late

time has rung the death knell

and decay has long since begun

then edited within an inch of it’s life, so it could appear here πŸ™‚

identifying with this tree is easy for me, as I live within this aging body of mine, watching as the bloom is off the rose πŸ™‚

If it was allowed (and in most cases it was), I fully intended to take more photos of the artwork, however, the docent who guided me through the art displays was so interesting I completely forgot to take any more photos. πŸ™‚

Of course I will be going back, because, after all, I signed up for a year πŸ™‚

I did some g’kid Christmas shopping at their gift shopΒ andΒ decided it was time to go home πŸ™‚
