Pause for Winter


The seasons change,

Every year,

Right before our eyes.

Colors morph week to week,

And still the end comes as a surprise.

The work begins,

With subtle progress week to week.

And just as the seasons change,

Every year.

The construction pauses for the winter.


1056 Fifth Avenue, where we are replacing terrace railings at this landmarked building. It has quite the spectacular view and I have been documenting the foliage alongside the progress since July.
