DAILY PHOTO: Rainy Season Angkor Wat

Taken in October of 2012 at Angkor Wat

Fun fact: Instead of a dry season and a monsoon (rainy) season, Angkor has a rainy season and a rainier season. That is, there’s the Northeast monsoon season from December through April, and that transitions into the Southwest monsoon season that picks up from April through November.

POEM: Ruins

blocks of rubble

corners & edges eroded round

bas reliefs dulled


adorned by jagged cracks

once the Earth’s most massive city

in its day London was a hamlet





infinitely patient arboreal adversaries

claimed the light

drilling down into cracks

making chasms

to set roots

strangler figs, literally,



[National Poetry Month: Poem #8]
