The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.
A long, black, and shiny Cadillac carIn a barren land so distant and far
Witness the monuments of nature and manEvolving from kayos? Or built with a plan?
Monuments rising a thousand feet highCarved by the wind and reaching the sky
A machine built for travel embellished with styleExpanding horizons with every mile
The lifespan is short for works man-madeCoveted possessions will all surly fade
These rocks were carved out by wind blown sandDotting the valley majestic and grand
A scene in the making for millions of yearsThe natural world and all its frontiers
Nature reclaims all that man makesHis greatest achievements and worst mistakes
“From dust to dust”, the old saying goesA man also reaps that which he sews
Metal will rust and paint will fadeSuch is the fate of all that’s man-made
Great job as always, flyrod…nice verse, too!
A million thanks my friend.
I love the poem, brilliant piece of writing. The images as always is superb work.
Great work as always.
You’ve gone and done it again – fabulous!
You made me find all of the 4 images flyrod. One of your signature reflections imposed on the Caddy. Makes is so believable. Also have to agree with “Nature reclaims all that man makesHis greatest achievements and worst mistakes”Great job!
Excellent writing and image…
