Edging forward

entry picture



edging forward

coasting in neutral

some minds playing

over past events

others planning or praying

others listening, talking, phoning, moaning

some going low speed

enough to read

some plotting, some jotting


Sometimes the way clears

or a joke is cracked

there is movement, there is laughter

there is



It can be amusing or just


to watch ones fellow travelers

on this highway,

to wave, to shout,

to smile

to doubt


while the journey continues

or doesn't

as breakdowns occur


watching the scenery

dreaming, scheming,

searching for meaning

watching the beautiful scenery


and on we crawl

breathing fumes

some rejoicing

their joy voicing

some fuming

the worst assuming

some patiently

An interesting one Dave - and very thought provoking. Without the picture, I would never have connected this to a traffic jam - despite the fumes. For me it is about life, the searching for meaning... Lucky are those who can just accept.

I really hate traffic jams. Its good to see something so productive come from what is a very negative experience!

Amazing the things we observe and think about in everyday situations.
I love the flow of this with the sudden stops and rhyme... just like edging forward in traffic, and in life : )
