The Junction

Black Walnuts


Among fallen wood that smells of rot
Death and decay tell of what is not
Wind stirs the pot of trees
Red Tails wait and watch

Along my path
Purple leaves ride the stream
Into the mist about the bridge

Have you ever seen a hearse go by?




The Junction is a digital crossroads devoted to stories, culture, and ideas. Our interests are legion.
