♫♫ Johnny Cash - Come Along And Ride This Train ♫♫

Train Ride

a poem by Ruth Stone

All things come to an end;
small calves in Arkansas,
the bend of the muddy river.
Do all things come to an end?
No, they go on forever.
They go on forever, the swamp,
the vine-choked cypress, the oaks
rattling last year’s leaves,
the thump of the rails, the kite
the still white stilted heron.
All things come to an end.
The red clay bank, the spread hawk,
the bodies riding this train,
the stalled struck, pale sunlight, the talk;
the talk goes on forever,
the wide dry field of geese,
a man stopped near his porch
to watch. Release, release;
between cold death and a fever,
send what you will, I will listen.
All things come to an end.
No, they go on forever.

You have somehow created motion in the stillness of the image! I feel as if I was with you!

WOW! These are so much fun! The motion blurs are perfect for giving me the feeling of flying along with you two, especially while listening to the Jonny Cash tune & reading that thoughtful verse! I could feel the thrills you were experiencing  while you were shooting the images , while shooting along through the countryside!!!+1smile+1
Bravo!!!
