"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

The Lament of An Old Park Bench.

I've had just enough time to...   sit on an old park bench.

Taken of this old park bench on top of Maxwell Hill that has seen better days.

I met an old park bench
Looking kind of sad
Or maybe a little mad
From the way it blenched.
When I am about to sit
It shrieked “Don’t do it!”
When I asked “Why Not?”
It said “My purpose is lost”

“I used to be happy
To do what I do best
To provide a respite,
A little rest.
But when they prefer the grass
I know my time has passed,”

I sat down gently on the dirty bench
Cradled its arm around the bend
Sat with it silently into the night
Till it was just us, and the starlight.

The next morning I went back to the park
To where the bench and me shared a spark
But the bench was nowhere to be found
Just a puddle of dew left on the ground.


A sea of smile and a river of tears
A flood of memories
Imagination will take me back
On an Old Park Bench
Old Park Bench
Old Park Bench
Old Park Bench
A summer's night, the stars aglow
Did more than light the sky
With fortune, fantasy, and fate
We dream on an old park bench
I take your hand in my hand
You hold my soul in yours
One touch becomes eternal
When falling in love


  1. I read this poem and thought of another - a poem of the Belarusian author Ales Ryazanov.

    In the park

    In the park near the creek
    were three boulder.
    This spring, people painted their
    in deep blue color -
    and thousands of years are died.

    I was up in Maxwell Hill when I spied this old park bench sitting forlornly in a secluded corner. It has gone through many coats of paints and the weather have stripped them to show its scars. It is moldy and dirty and blend it so well with the surrounding that one can easily missed it. But if you were to sit on it and look out, you will be rewarded with a most beautiful and inspiring scenery. There are something very sad about forsaken benches and I sympathized with them...

    Lovely find and capture Thou. And love your take on the story behind this bench. I hope after much thought your were able to reassure it with the knowledge that its time hadn't passed. It was still in the best position of offering it's users the best scenery. Wood has enduring qualities that can last for many years. All it needed was someone to come along, every now and then to clean it up and treat with a protective anti- mould varnish. : ))
