31st December eve...unfinished business

Years ago I did a photo haiku on a 31st December..This is take 2... a poem (a  bad poem)  in photos.

Just before the year ends
Buy a guitar

Write a love song

Sing it with the crowds
running to watch the fireworks
at 12 o one

Sing it in the tube 
over the shrill
of the breaks on the cold rail

End it on a happy note

All these images were taken this eve . 
When you look for images , you start to see stories . Episodes of lives .

On this 31st I saw Pizza deliverymen sharing a pizza on the pavement right off the pan . Whether it was a gift from the chef or some thing left by a customer I do not know.

A pickpocket hurriedly disappeared in to the crowds with somebody's wallet.

People in their party hats were flocking to the pier to watch the fireworks at midnight... youngsters in flocks . .. travelers with their girl friends for the night ...

I also saw an old lady smile and say "May peace be with you " at the end of the mass, to a stranger.

Life goes on , I know. Yet ,  it is time to refresh . Wishing you a peaceful 2013.

    JP, The way you handle the language is amazing! I don't know how you do it.
    The only thing that bothers me even in this new year is that so many people miss your wordcraft! (Yeah, I created the word right now and it got underlined in red, telling me so!
