The Long Trip 8 – Photos and Poetry 37 – Rest Awhile


Rest a While (1 of 1)


Rest Awhile

Rest awhile on this bench,
Let your woes subside,
It’s there to be used not admired.
Where is everyone rushing to?
Running this way and that.
What is your hurry Mr.Nobody?
Can’t you see that there’s no turning back.
Stay still as a duck in rushing waters,
Ponder for a moment or two,
They can see tired eyes falling,
Stung by what you deem the best of the rest.

The photograph was taken in the Trossachs near the beginning of my long trip.



If you are viewing on a phone you may need to click on “View full site” which will be right at the very bottom of the page, you will then be able to view the photos with a black background, as they should be viewed.

I love to hear what you have to say about anything I post.


If you don’t already know my other blog 1500 Saturdays I hope you’ll pop over and take a look, though I don’t post much these days here
