An Overturned Piano

                                                  ... an overturned piano's last note

                      ... a theater fallen silent
   
                                                                     ... endless empty windows

                                                                                                                ... a broken clock at closing time

  1. Why am I thinking that this looks like the French Revolution?!

  2. Dear Teresa, the picture and the poem give us endings. My hope always is that each ending has a beginning twined within. Peace.

  3. A stunning photo of a crumbling, abandoned city center. I remember a collection of them, and your words capture the sense of sudden interruption.

    1. We are living in a time of just such interruptions. That's an excellent way of expressing it.

  4. It reminds me of the grand old past when everyone was dancing and having a good time but now all we have is a memory and the remnants of what had been. Brilliant photo as it conjures up lots of thoughts.

  6. I like the way you've arranged the images, without interjecting human sentiment. The creator vivid, and compelling impression.
