Pounding. Pounding. Pounding.

Always ever stomping, chest drum beating

Thudding up and down, up and down.

Heart forcing its way up and out.

 

Racing here. There. Back. There. Again.

Never closing, always opening. Wider, Wider.

Espying, Missing. Chasing, Searching, Seeking. There!

Eyes ever seeing what remains unseen.

 

HELP. Help. help. Shhh.

Choking. Stopping.  Breath intangible, concrete.

Words Spilling Out in Air. Hanging. Fading. Gone.

Voice Screaming whispered cries falling from speechless lips.

 

Squeak. Rasp. Scritch. Scritch.  Squeak.

Louder, still muted. Rising, while Falling. Hush, Listen.

Hearing voices calling, whispering through paper walls.

Ears Grasping Sounds Illusory, Yet Deafening.

 

Terror. Behind. Peril! Behind. DANGER! Look! Behind!

Arms Prickling, Warning. Stomach Clenching, Beware.

Heart Racing. Eyes Widening. Voice Pleading. Ears Listening.

Yet Knowing, Mind reassuring. You are alone. In Silence.

Tools of the Trade
This sight will always remind me of my life here in #China. One of the #values important to the Chinese is making sure everyone has access to a #job so they can survive. So instead of using big machines to sweep the highways and streets, they pay the older people a small amount to do the job. It’s not ideal, but it’s enough to live on. They are very proud of the parts they clean. And the street sweepers are able to use empty plots of land by the roads to grow Food and Vegetables. 

So every day in my small village (Ok, 600,000 people- but That’s a Farming village here. . . .) you see the elderly driving by on these tuk-tuks with brooms they made by hand. Really sweet picture in my memory bank!

I specialize in travel photography, particularly covering my life in Asia the US. While I spend a lot of time roaming about the greater American states, I have spent the last 6 years also roaming about China, Korea and Japan. And for the past 3 years, I have been living and teaching in China.

I also work a lot with flowers, architecture, and landscaping. My interests are diverse, as is my writing and photography!

hello.
i have read your story here. how many siblings do you have?

yes, good people still exist. in my country neighbours may look coldhearted to each other. but in many cases they are good.
when somebody dies or gives birth, colleagues are usually the first who provide help (this is apart from relatives.in my homeland we usualy have many relatives and help each other).

Yes, unfortunately family members here frequently aren't as close as I've noticed in other countries. Perhaps that is why our small towns find it so important to rally around one another in times of trouble. I find our neighbors are often more aware of one another's lives than those elsewhere. You cannot always rely on people having someone else willing to offer assistance. That's why I think it is so important to be good at both: as a family member and as a neighbor. :)
