what! me speed? Pictures, Images and Photos
Life zipping past as if in overdrive
Ebb and flow with unknowns thrown in 
Racing against the tide at all times
Surging ahead on whippy foamy waters 
Stress contaminated senses worn thin and bare  
Forever dashing around like a crazed hen 
Working woefully till the last ounce of energy
Crashing into a unmade bed in the three-piece suit
Moments of madness in the middle of the night
Oppressively sad without really knowing it
The ethereal calm may not last forever

Put up tired legs and just watch the traffic 
Find the patchwork overall and the garden
Some time to smell air good enough to eat
The mountain beckons with paths less trodden 
Collect rare shells on lonely long beaches
The winding rivers lure with whitewater rafts
Ride a bullock cart to discover forgotten forts
Trigger a renewal before a rap on the knuckles
Face up squarely before the banana boats pitch
Make a dramatic heft from the cloistral confines 
Sap it stem it stop it change it before it’s too late
