My Favorite Photo Of the Year

I've been browsing the colorful images in the media and the Internet has been providing me with ample resource for it. I choose this image of Tiananmen in China amidst a heavily polluted gray sky and underneath it is a billboard display of a clear, blue sky above towering mountains. 



You can't get more irony from a single image. We could discuss this socially, philosophically or ecologically and not run out of things to say about it. What is wrong about this picture is what is perfect about this picture.

After the Rain



I know you have to go
sometime
but after the rain.

When the wet and the dry
reflect the heavens
I breathe.

When you take your punishment
to set free
and to light fires.
