Weekly Photo Challenge: It’s Not This Time of Year Without…

Autumn Leaves
location: San Francisco Bay Area, Northern California
 

Free Falling

can’t stop the leaves from falling
nature has the final say
even on a fair autumn morning
the wind blows them all away

brown, red, yellow, or green
their color doesn’t matter
on these grounds where they now lay
they are dead, they breathe no longer

the tree made leafless looks grim
branches pointing up to heaven
once again, it would need a trim
for next spring, so says the raven

weekly photo challenge: fray

weeds
location: san francisco bay area, california
 
i took this picture in front of a house in our neighborhood. as you can see, it’s becoming an eyesore with frayed and overgrown dry weeds around it. it wasn’t like this before. the property used to be well-maintained and taken care of.

several months ago, a murder took place in the house. for some unexplained reason, the husband shot his wife in one of the bedrooms. their eldest daughter found her body hidden in a closet when she came home from school.

it’s incomprehensible that a man would kill a woman much more if she was his wife and mother of his children. if there were irreconcilable differences between them, he could have divorced her instead of using excessive force that he might later regret.

as a result of this tragedy, the children, an 8-year old girl and a 14-year old girl, have lost both parents with the dad in jail and the mother dead. they must have felt abandoned like the house where they used to live.
