A bit of summer beauty

As summer comes to the end here in San Francisco with a bit of a “heat wave” for these parts (which around here means temperatures in the 80’s which I still scoff at compared to Chicago’s typical week+ every August of 100-110+ a photo from my summer of which I’m particularly proud.

Enjoy!

And a wandering he will go

Posted by shannonclark on October 25, 2007

Sounds of the new city echo through thin, uninsulated wallsmotorcycles roar over poetry readings

wafts of smoke, not cigarettes, drift into homes, businesses and down the street

while in every doorway someone sleeps

on the sidewalk, even deep in residential neighborhoods, random piles of shoes, books, pots, pans and Chinese caligraphy sets appear.

Disappear,

reappear.

He wanders at odd hours, waits for new buses on old corners

wonders

a phrase echoing of poems past.

He settles in but is not, yet, home.

Just passing and lingering for a time.
