Down By The River


Down By The River
Down by the river an old man sang,
His voice so full of life, one with tide.
He whistled ancient tunes, calling
His soul back home, borne on wind and stars.

Down by the river, old women sang,
Their voices full of family love.
They hummed ancient lullabies, soft
And gentle, guiding their children home.

  1. Reblogged this on Photos That Inspire Words and commented:
    David R Durham is such a gifted writer & photographer and I have just become one of his biggest fans.
    I reblogged three of his works on PhotosThatInspireWords today because he is doing what I had hoped to see others do with the photos I select for the site…write something that inspires you when you look at the photo.
    Keep writing and shooting photos that freeze great moments for all time.

    Elated to have discovered you, all because you began following me.


          1. I just added you to my World Clock so I would know what time it is where you are. Looks like it is 730 pm. It is 1132 am here…
            I would love to travel to London one day and there is so much I want to see, especially the old tea houses, of course The Big Ben etc…
            Now there is a focal point…YOU.
            England always reminds me of Mary Poppins.

          2. If you ever travel to Las Vegas, NV, USA ….look me up. Lots of beautiful things to photograph and international business people here & housing is cheaper…..which is why I came.
