Old Friends

OLD FRIENDS

I have here two much loved books
Originally purchased at second-hand shops
(being pretty short of money in my youth – 10p each!)
I have now replaced them both in better shape
So the earlier copies are surplus to requirement

While I have looked after them carefully
(You may remember from our years together
That I’m always careful with books, discs etc.)
They were a little careworn by previous owners
So I don’t think charity shops would be interested

The content beneath the slightly dilapidated surfaces though
Is too precious to be thoughtlessly assigned to the refuse bin just yet

I recognise you as a discerning reader
And wonder whether you might not
Offer them a temporary home, another reading
Even though it might be their last

In exchange I believe you may receive herein
Some fine entertainment
Some food for thought
Let me know if interested and
I’ll package and despatch them

Reconciliation

RECONCILIATION

It is never too late
To say your peace
Unless of course
You leave it too late

Lynne’s Demise

LYNNE’S DEMISE

Gone you are now then
Flowers are all that remains
I can offer you

Friendship Dissected

FRIENDSHIP DISSECTED

Intimate strangers
Waving at one another
Coming and going
Exchanging a word or two
Avoiding disagreement

A Role In The Hey

A ROLE IN THE HEY

Hey after all
My life could be worse
I could be you

Hey after all
You life could be worse
You could be me

Hey after all
Our life could be better
We could be one together

Freedom

FREEDOM

Not allowed to say a word
Not allowed to make a sound
Allowed to do anything
But there are consequences

Nuptials Ongoing

NUPTIALS ONGOING

She’s always found right
Whereas he’s always found wrong
He’s her perfect match

He’s probably right
Whereas she’s probably wrong
But he keeps the peace

Chiselling at it
Venturing past right and wrong
They’ve found perfect peace

Season’s Greetings

SEASON’S GREETINGS

I bless you
For reminding us
Of others
In essence
However we may view them
Not other at all

The Wizard (23b)

THE WIZARD

Gone midnight
He would bring the smoke
I’d make tea
And oatcake
Didn’t talk much; preferred to
Soak up the music

FOR KIM

Your comments
Spread across our posts
You and I
Conversing
I come across them again
And I shed a tear
