The Garden Gate

July 04, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The weathered and aging gate, at the end of a pine needle-covered path lying amidst colorful shrubs, stands between a manicured and serene garden and the "unkempt" world of Nature, between human-made order and natural order, one no less beautiful than the other. The gate is a section in a fence running along a gradual slope that adds stress to its joints.  It lacks the gnarly character of the nearby bench shown in a previous post, but then it doesn't sit in open sunlight and is constructed from more age-resistant cedar.  Nevertheless, the cracks are evident and the hinges creak with any movement.  A different sort of character from the bench!  Somehow there's a metaphor in here, but i'll leave it to you, the reader, to find yours.
