Worth

Another old photograph from the Isle of Man. This one is a view across Port Erin. I know some photographers may grimace as I struggle to find it sticking to any of the rule of thirds, but cut out any of it and it misses something so…well rules are made to be broken aren’t they? Nb There is a poem to read below…

Port Erin, Isle of Man

Port Erin, Isle of Man

Worth

.

What is your worth? Son,

You are part of something huge

See the big picture.

.

Each wave’s glinting crest

Has its moment and then fades

In obscurity.

.

Each wave has its worth

None more, though, than another

On an ocean’s scales.

.

Each sea, too, may rage

But all become one when seen

From where heaven sits.

.

And so each sparrow

Each blade of grass, grows and fades

As will you and I.

About Maitiu

I am a collection of aspects. A father, a husband, an uncle, a son, a teacher, an aspiring writer, an amateur photographer, a poor guitar player, a slightly better singer... Online however I am a 365er looking to find out what people make of my personal poetic musings and my photographs. Drop a penny in an old man's hat and let me know what you think...
