Stains are the effects of a cause, the proof of circumstance, the evidence of events. Stains are made by daylight, weather and natural disasters, on surfaces that reflect, and in the danger zone.
Daylight At sunrise the stain of dayliht soaked the brick wall of my house and dripped onto the sidewalk. I stood outside and turned my face to the sun. My shadow trickled into the dusty gutters and stained the street behind me.

Natural Disasters The stains of earthquakes in the broken stones.
Reflections Reflections of the gloomy tundra stain the mirror through the dusk.
