Discarded materials from a construction site gathering evening shadows, Southern Arizona

In a box of castoff wood,
Shadows do what shadows should:
Downplay darkness, accent light,
Making all the world seem right.

Shadows find homes in strange places.

  1. Great stuff, Teach!

  2. Why is this lumber was off? I can think of useful projects around here but being 2000 miles or so away means it stays in AZ…nice shadows fall upon the land as the workday is over

  3. lovely haiku to go with the remnants from re-building.

  4. “Shadows do what shadows should…” ☺

  5. Can’t help but wonder what they were used for!

  7. That really is an odd bit of wood. The shape reminds me of a sluice box – used for dredging in gold panning. But I imagine that would be impossible there. So i don’t know. an interesting one.

      It’s an odd find, I agree!
