Vanished Trees Pandering In Whispers To The Last And Greatest of Human Dreams

A Saban (Pond) Reflection

As you meander down below Windwardside proper and edge upon the remains of Captain’s Quarters below the hill, there is a square concrete catch basin on your right, just below weathered beams and frames that stand by themselves, undaunted by the years that’ve passed since Hurricane Georges in 1998. I don’t know what it was when the building was there, but the basin has taken on a pond life of its own, guppies darting about, lily like plants and their water reflections, colorful pink coral vine and other beautiful flowers growing wild around it. Every time I go by it, I just put my face up close and watch it for a while, life among the ruins.
