  1. You need to bin this Vanessa. Not the poem, that is very good. I mean the thought of the trash man. You could recycle him into…………. (add name as appropriate).

    1. hahaha I did ponder the betrayal of my own linguistic upbringing, in just using the word “trash” instead of “bin” or “rubbish”, apart from another conversation in my mind about using a different word/phrase/concept. But this was my initial melodramatic thought, when I actually heard the rubbish truck coming down the street…and I decided to keep the melodrama. 🙂

  2. This poem reminded me of the poor Trash Can Man from The Stand.

    1. I have never read it. haha I can assure you I did not have that in mind when I wrote this 🙂
      And thank you so much for the lovely comment on the photo. Yes, I took it. Most of the photos on my blog are mine. This was taken in the French Alps in the spring about 13 years ago. I remember it was a perfectly gorgeous day.
      I’m glad you liked the music too 🙂 Ah, rain! Perfect!
