Trampled Rose

30s f/11 ISO100 11mm


I've been waiting for the right day and tide to go out and shoot my own version of this little tree. Check one off the Bucket List :-) (I'm sure I'll be back)


Long way going to

Get my medicine

Sky's the autumn grey of a lonely wren


Piano from a window played

Gone tomorrow, gone yesterday


I found it in the street

At first I did not see

Lying at my feet

A trampled rose


Passing the hat in church

It never stops going around


You never pay just once

To get the job done


What I done to me,

I done to you

What happened to the trampled rose?


In the muddy street

With the fireworks and leaves


A blind man with a cup I asked

Would he sing 'Kisses Sweeter Than Wine'


I know that rose,

Like I know my name

The one I gave my love,

It was the same

Now I find it in the street,

A trampled rose

- Tom Waits (Trampled Rose)
