Silhouette

Shore-beached boat once sailed

Silhouette of tree marks spot

Nets no longer fish…

  4. There is a sadness here…boats that no longer sail, nets that no longer catch. Really nice.

  13. Lonely..

    Could you go anymore intense? I almost got a haunting feeling- I mean desolated types not eerie! I was transported there at that barren shore watching the boat staring at the sun blankly. That tree and the abandoned net being its companion. What do they do? Discuss how it used to be? Do they feel happy sometimes when they talk about the beautiful days?

    Who knows!!

    Love xoxox

  14. It looked like a lonely picture didn’t it? So I tried to match it…

    Maybe once in a while a kid will come by and take the boat out when no one is looking… Perhaps there’s still a little life left in that boat–while the tree and the nets watch–happy for their friend.

    Who knows…

    Thanks Olivia for getting me thinking again!

    Lots of love… xo

    • Anyday Gayle Dear!

      I can’t help “brooding” the moment I see something Intense!
      All things lonely fascinate me a lot.. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Now I have memorized your daughters’ names for once..

      I feel, with change of time, this boat will float to the other shore where a maverick like me would display it next to the pool or in the garden area against a rock.. as on date, I have neither.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ so they’ll have to wait till I acquire some.. ๐Ÿ™‚

      My best wishes to the left outs! it’s these that make wonderful antiques!

      Love xx

      • Or it could be filled with soil and made into a beautiful planter (large) for some flowers while “beached” in the garden! ๐Ÿ™‚ It would be lovely by your pool when you acquire one too!

        I too love antiques–those cast offs from days gone by. Some real treasures can be found…

        Love you… xo

  15. Gayle,
    This could transfer into a story. The image is so beautiful even with it’s grey – ness. I like the fog creeping in and soothing the abandoned canoe. Good job on this one. Really enjoyed it. Thanks for posting.

    • It is a beautiful image–so much can be said about it. It’s a prompt for our haiku challenge for this month. Forgive me if I’ve already told you.

      I’m glad you like it. Thank you, Isadora.
