I’ve got a thing for benches, so I wrote a poem about them to accompany the pictures I always seem to take when I encounter a bench (before I sit on it).
A Bench is Waiting
a bench is an invitation to sit and rest to unwind to take a breath to reflect a bench is a reminder that others came before you and others will come after a bench is welcoming communal acknowledging the shared nature of a space a bench is an invitation to become one with it to let nature and the world flow around you a bench is waiting for you to give it purpose for a moment
A bench is waiting for you.
