Enjoying the view...

Two chairs face the lake
Metal table wedged between
Wild geraniums
Tufted cushions 
Stake the claim of nature's scheme 

I came for the view - to sit a while and watch the lake.  But when I arrived, I realized it had been a while, quite a while, since I'd sat there last.  Weeds - sprawling, feathery, flower-bedecked greenery - had woven their way in between the chair slats.  

I didn't sit down.

My intention was to take pictures of the water.  I wound up taking pictures of the chairs instead.


  1. You gave up your seat for Mother Nature...a very mannerly thing to do!

  2. You gave your seat to
    Mother Nature - she thanks you!
