WEATHERED AND WORN
Carmi's theme this week could amount to multiple posts. There are numerous avenues one could take with "weathered and worn" even people become weathered and worn as well.
Carmi mentioned, "We tend to forget about the things that we're leaving behind" mostly in the process, of moving on to newer and better things.
Once upon a time there was an old wagon.
Renewing that old useful thing for showy display
makes perfect sense for those
weathered and worn things of yesterday.
Those were the days my friend when you graced the road
and trees weren't pushing through your bumper.
Just tonight I stood before your boat
and in the glass I saw a strange reflection
of you pushing away from shore long ago.
Through the trees there came familiar laughter of times gone by.
My father's boat - hasn't seen a body of water since he left us.
Here's a project that my youngest son
starry visions of repairing a blown engine!
Back in those high school days he dreamed of all the great things this red
hot car might do!
So many trees, so many fallen leaves, not just ours but all around town
they are weathered and worn
simply stressed out from not enough of
winter's moisture and far too many hot and dry days of summer
that their leaves have given up the struggle and fallen
before their time.
Like sister, like brother or should it be reversed?
Below is a project car of ours that my daughter
planned on bringing out of it's
weathered and worn stage.
Those were the days of her very young childhood
dreams for when she grew up....
La la la la.....
Yes, those were the days my friend.....we thought they'd never end......
We'd live the life we choose, but did this sad little left behind
snowmobile of past snow wonders
really dream of moss growing on it?
Oh my friend we're older but obviously not wiser.
So once upon a time there was a tavern,
where we used to raise a glass or two-
remember how we laughed away the hours-
and dreamed of all the great things we would do?
Well there's no time like the present-that taverns closed but all those dreams have weathered and worn long enough. Let's make those dreams come true.
So are you excited to view more
or post your own?
