We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof...For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song... Psalms 137-2-3

Hikers have bad luck
If they are caught in rain...
The driver of the truck
Rolling down the highway
Who has nothing to gain,
But to offer them a ride
From the good of his heart,
Probably doesn't expect pay
Or for them to hang their harp
Upon a drenched willow
Nor to sing..."Swing low
For this chariot sweet...
But he may require
Them to get out on the street
And change a flat tire.

Poetry by me AJP


I captured this shot of the truck in front of us as we drove in the rain a few days ago to buy groceries...

Fortunately, it wasn't raining quite as furiously as it was earlier in the day....but still it had to be a wet ride for these guys in the back of the truck...The poetry I wrote is just a wild guess that they were picked up in the rain...For all I know they might have known the driver and just out cruising down main street:) I liked the sign in the back of the truck that first caught my attention...

    Love this candid shot, great expression on the guy to the left, love the cap barely set on the man's head, the other guy curled up pulling on his cigarette, love the reflec in the mirror too..

    Thank you all for the comments...Not sure what the beautiful thing was

    Susan unless it was to hang up the cell phone and drive to stay alive...

    This is a wonderful candid shot of these guys! I like the bumper sticker too. Too many people have wrecks when talking on their cell phones.
