Poem and Pictures: A Bench is Waiting

3 Comments

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.
