After 20 years of walking and jogging past
this barn on Elm Street in Pittsford,
I was determined to paint the soft faded greys.
I love the little red milk barn and the way,
when the ridgeline is all that appears in the distance,
the closest mountains seem to meet the barn roof.

I thought of Bonnie Raitt’s song and especially
the line “Little by little you fade while I fall apart.”
