Lover’s Felled

November Photo A Day Challenge, by City Sonnet, Day 26


Under years of siege by water and oxygen from the air, these iron poles of erstwhile streetlights, gave in, slowly turning to rust.

It also had tangles of some indistinguishable vine, looped around.

Like a lover who did not want to part even in death, the vines wrapped around the rusted poles, in love’s last embrace.

The dying vine formed a beautiful curlicue on the rusted poles which made me stop and pay tribute to this lovers felled, as a photograph for posterity.
