Zyryality: The Lost Battle

How did it happen that the tough and proud concrete got conquered by the soft and tender vines and leaves? All you need is love?

Oh, Viktor, nothing is lost--those concrete steps are tough and so so sturdy that they have retained their self. They just surrendered to the soft and tender touch of vines and leaves.
vz-nostalgia: Is it possible to surrender and retain your own self, Ms. Kathryn? smile

Pity the poor concrete steps...they must rely upon the second-hand resolve of their human creators.

It is "no contest"...these "soft and tender leaves" are the lungs of a powerful creeper that generates its own resolve.

Very fine image, VZ.
vz-nostalgia: I have no pity for the concrete steps, Ray. They allowed to be swallowed and they got what they deserved. smile

Love and someone to cut away the leaves, but of what use, I think the concrete stairs might feel loved by the leaves....who knows, stranger things has happened in this mad world.....
Love the picture very much, have a nice weekend.
vz-nostalgia: It seems the toughness of concrete is surely no match to the tenderness of leaves' love, Ms. Astrid. smile
Nature 1 Concrete 0....looks good to me!
vz-nostalgia: Hahaha. I think it took longer than 90 minutes for the leaves to score, Bill.

Ah, but the concrete steps will still be there, hard and uncompromising as ever, when the leaves have blown away.

vz-nostalgia: Only temporarily, Ms. Ingrid. Only temporarily. New season comes, the greens are fresh as ever, but the concrete has a few small cracks. The years will pass, the steps will turn into a dust and greens will sing a song of victory. smile

Love conquers all in this kind of battle, VZ. Nature teaches us not to resist!! And in the end, we loss nothing except what was not meant to be. We gain everything we did not know we already had.
vz-nostalgia: "We gain everything we did not know we already had". Oh, Ms. Ginnie, that's too deep of a thought for my tired mind. smile You have to explain this to me, when you have a minute.

Lovely thought and a thoughtful pic, but looking at your photo I never would think of the terms 'battle' and 'conquer', for the leaves have fallen down so softly and they now cover and envelop the steps like an oriental (colourful leaves?) carpet, steps and leaves could in this way form a symbiosis, they nestle against each other, perhaps the beginning of falling in 'love'? I don't hope that any workers of the street-cleaning will come and disturb this tender tete- a- tete!
vz-nostalgia: I love your concept of a coexistence of tough and tender, of strong and weak, Ms. Philine. If only this was true in real life. smile

Love and persistence wins in the end...
vz-nostalgia: you might say so, Larry. Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King paid with their lives to prove it.
All you need is camouflage Vik
vz-nostalgia: to blend with the environment until time comes to strike, Chris? smile

It shows that the popular opinion is stronger than facts cast in concrete smile Great picture for the anti-motivational handbook. Check http://demotivators.com/
vz-nostalgia: Oh, I love this. Demotivators! Hahahaha. Thanks for the link, Louis.
A recent TV programme showed how, if mankind were to disappear, it would take 40 years for bridges to tumble and wolves&wolflike dogs to take over. Nature fights us continuously, and if you want to know who's winning you should see my garden.
vz-nostalgia: Do you remember the name of this programme, Ms. Jamoula? I'd love to see it. Maybe I can find it on Netflix.
