Homage to William Carlos Williams’ ‘Red Wheelbarrow’!

Red Wheelbarrow

‘so much depends
upon

a red wheel
barrow

glazed with rain
water

beside the white
chickens’

‘How did it get so late so soon?’ (Dr Seuss)

 

 

There are few ‘finds’ more evocative of the past than a once-much-loved watch nestled away at the bottom of a sock drawer.  The moment in time may be frozen but associated memories begin to flow freely.

I feel this abstract image has the qualities of a woodblock print  but it began life as a photo of my wife’s pin box!
