Rear view mirror



The photo was taken today. It’s still very mild in Georgia. The title reminded me of a poem I had once written. So much has been

disposable in life, including life itself.



used up
crushed and thrown away
broken against an unsuspecting road sign
or mailbox
any target will do
hit or miss
it doesn’t matter
just throw it
let it sail
watch it bounce and skip along the roadside
disappearing in the rearview mirror

Searching high and low no matter where i go it always seems the same: shades of grey. Or, was that gray?

    My mom used to say a little ditty about a little crooked man walking down a little crooked road. I like my rearview mirror to life. It shows me where I traveled, good and bad. A reflection of me, good and bad. Kinda humbling if taken i the right context.Ooh, I need to go to bed, before more of this type of reflection comes out of me.I did enjoy your picture and poem Ms. J.Thanks for sharing with us.

    The one thing that spoils the natual beauty of most places… is that of litter. It just kinda takes from the “nature” of it all. Even if we were to have roadside signs to remind people "…Keep our land neat and clean, keep your litter off the scene…" wouldn\’t do much good for some people. Unfortunately. Aaaaargh! What is so difficult in keeping a plastic bag in the car/truck and dump your garbage at home! :o(
