True Friendship

TRUE FRIENDSHIP

Time spent together
Ephemeral as flowers
Yet it continues

In Touch

IN TOUCH

Where are you?
And what’s
Happening with you?

I see your on-line site has gone now too.
While – lost but not forgotten – I remain
And would appreciate contact.

Communication after all
Is even at its best
A two way street.

While without any
Bearable life disappears.

Accidental Betrayals (A Four By Six)

ACCIDENTAL BETRAYALS

Adrift in this jet stream
Futures already gone
No longer remembered
Those unforgettables

Sunny Side Up

SUNNY SIDE UP

Let us fill Winter
Cold and dark both night and day
With our warm regards

Fire II

FIRE II

Fire – a good friend
A dangerous enemy
Some people likewise

Flirtation

FLIRTATION

A gentle tease. Oh where shall I wander?
Upstairs? Downstairs? In my lady’s chamber?
Pictures within my mind take form, a game.
Hoping that she might be doing the same.

Betrayal

BETRAYAL

You blew my cover
The one person I trusted
So colour me gone

Miss Jones

MISS JONES

We lost one another somehow, lost our way
In a trick of the light in a mist in a maze

Gasping, grasping, grappling day after day
As seconds turn into minutes, hours, days

So long, so long by some cruel fate kept apart
Yet memories glow in my mind, dear old friend

And it’s chin up, stand firm and never lose heart
For some day we’ll revel together again in the end

Togetherness

Martin

MARTIN

“There’s always death to look forward to
And there are no pockets in a shroud”

He is now doddering on through his 80s
And still has vital things to teach me

If I am fortunate enough to catch him here
While he breezes by in his egocentric fog

Words like pride, honour, respect and love
Are never ones he felt himself worthy of
