The Road to Nowhere

Photo by Mark Haley
Spying an old man
Sitting beneath a tree
I pause and asked him kindly
Just where does this road lead
The man just sat and stared 
Beware the road to nowhere
Was all that he would say


  1. Well now, that was certainly a tease. (LOL?)

  2. Jerry- If they ever tell the story, I'll write it down...they don't always tell me the whole story upfront.

  3. Babs- Thank you! That's what I was going for.

  4. He would be a Talking Head , perhaps ?

  5. Hi Linda - he'd obviously been travelling for a long time ... and probably often sat beneath that tree ...

    Great tale though .. cheers Hilary

  6. But were you taking the road to nowhere, or was he? Hmmm...

  7. That's enough to make me sit down in the road!


  8. Kutamun- How so?

    Hilary- Thanks! It's definitely a lonesome road.

    ~T~ - The travelers were on the road and, asking where the road would take them, found out that perhaps they'd taken a wrong turn. At least that's what I wanted.

    Sue- Yeah, I think I'd turn around!

  9. Twilight Zone words, but also a good on the picture. It does look like the "road to nowhere."

  10. The road to nowhere is definitely not one you would want to be taking, so wise words shared from the old man & ones to be taken heed of for sure! Nice Mag!

  11. I like the whole tone of this one. What he a prophet or a mad man? An intriguing question to ponder. :)

  12. Nicely done.. eerie.. ish. :)
