Plea of a Stranger
I was passing by. I don't remember the Street, but I agree with this thought for Sunday and for everyday.
Hyde Park Skyline
As seen from the breakwater -- no sand, rocky beach & rocky shore -- off of LaRabida's parking lot at 67th.
To a Waterfowl
Prancing among a graveyard of fallen trees -- in a large Retention pond.122nd & Torrence Ave. "To a Waterfowl" by William Cullen Bryant became a favorite poem of mine because we were forced to memorize & recite it in Mrs. Davie's 9th grade English class. However, I didn't appreciate the spirituality & power of the poem until later on in life as my spirituality became deeper.
"All right Mr. Demille, I'm ready for my close-up" Norma Desmond played by Gloria Swanson in the film noir, Sunset Boulevard. 1950. One of Hollywood's most quoted lines. Jackson Park Lagoon.
What's at the end of that far horizon? A place called Indiana, my friends. And your kind resides there too. 67th.
Snapshot of May 19th
This look, this feel, was a long time coming -- welcome Ms. Springtime. You're kinda cool for this date -- still, I really like the ambience -- especially the floral-dress you're wearing. Off 122nd & Torrence Ave.
Wildflowers. They need no chemical food, organic soil, nor a Gardner's care -- to be beautiful.
Blooms for Sunday
First Presbyterian Church, 6400 S. Kimbark Ave.
Interpretation of Midnite
Of moonlight, darkness and a rumbling, screeching L- train of dozing night-shifters heading for the Loop.
