SUNDAY POST: Surrounded

Ages ago a city vanished under the raging lava to be uncovered 17 centuries later and shown to the world. The dead city with so many traces of life remains as a reminder of once advanced civilisation.

In the middle of the yard of an anonymous house surrounded by ancient columns stands a tree, the subject of my take on the Β Sunday post challenge.

Listen to Rodrigo Leao’s Vita brevis (as in Ars longa, vita brevis – or in my interpretation of Pompeii “Lives were extinguished, but art lives on”)Β
