One Deep Breath: Contrast


Squishy plum fallen
Busy apartment walkway
Who stops?

I saw this plum while walking in my neighborhood last month, and was caught by how full and round it was, how smooth on the rough sidewalk, how still and self contained in a usually busy sidewalk. Not a big contrast, but an interesting one to me. I wonder which of the local wildlife ended up eating it?

I also love plums - juicy and squashy, with all the summer sun sweetness in them. And they're at their best when sun warmed. Mmmm. I saw the same plum later in the afternoon, but by the next morning, it was gone.

And welcome, Andres Gustavo Fernandez. Thank you for the lovely things you've said.

I'd say that's quite a big contrast, between such vulnerability and such hardness. I found myself worrying for that plum! :-)

What good contrast - in photo and lines. Nice, oh, nice!
