Stay Away

I follow GPS, in search of river trails, and find a road blocked off. Curious, I park the car and carefully step through the overgrowth to the place where a bridge once carried traffic over the river. Strange the absence of passage, the neglect.

A rocky embankment houses creeping vines, and the weavings of a local eight-legged resident. I back away.

The charm of some places invite exploration. Creepy just says “stay away”.

(For Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: creepy.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. VJ, it is creepy when the water does not flow and the remnants are neglected. My brother tells me that a couple of the swimming lakes our family used to frequent have dried up and not returned. It saddens me. Keith
