Aperture:f/2.4
ISO:1600
Shutter:1/7 sec
Camera:Lumia 520

As the early evening sky spills out
what is left of its soft wet golden light
an old man wanders in search of a bench
where he can sit half in shade half in sun
refreshed by the breeze and left in peace
to let his mind set out at last alone.

Thus rested the old man closes his lids
sees the serpent’s eye in the green
seeing him being seen
knows he is ready now to leave
wanting nothing more
than to jettison all
and slowly succumb
to the currents of emptiness rising.
