country barns


Yet more summer vacation: to wander around and through the memory of what was once of use...


we walked across a bridge of planks...
(sky and water make a dance of reflections)


...to look around beyond the farmhouse.


There were barns to the right of us...


and barns to the left, as well as a number of outbuildings.
I walked between the small red building and the big brown barn...


... and saw these windows all in a row...


...turned around to see the light
on the grass and the fields beyond...


...inside the small red building, there are the remnants of long-ago chores,
and reflected in the window, the recreation of a sunny summer day.


The big brown barn was built almost ninety years ago.


Look inside, through a hole in the door,
and see all the interior architecture like a rural cathedral.
