Lonely Things


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

May we be granted the power

to understand

the nature of  loneliness

and the empathy

to admire the bravery

of  those who suffer in silence

and alone

abandoned: a wagon in the Czech republic

 discarded: a plastic bag similar to the one in ‘American Beauty’

derelict: a beggar on a rainy day  in Glasgow

excluded: a penguin at Discovery Point in Dundee

imprisoned: a man at a window in Italy

isolated: a boy on the Est Sands, St. Andrews

neglected: two dugs outside Weston Links, Edinburgh

rejected: a mother and son on a beach in Tunisia

  1. 7 billion people on this crowded earth, split-second communication facilities…and loneliness is master. Why talk to my neighbor? He isn’t interested listening? Good picture.
