Sweet Neighbour

SWEET NEIGHBOUR

Whatever gift you might perceive
Some another has been gifted with
Is surely by definition also yours
Since elsewise how perceived?

Look within, my dear, discover
Both eternity and infinity
Patiently await you
As ever was

As ever was
Patiently await you
Both eternity and infinity
Look within, my dear, discover

Since elsewise how perceived?
Is surely by definition also yours
Some another has been gifted with
Whatever gift you might perceive

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

Legacy

LEGACY

Once I’m at last dead and gone
And once you’ve cracked the password
(Which – I warn you
Is in itself no mean task)

There they will lie before you
Wantonly displaying themselves
After all – you persevered
(Your comment is awaiting moderation)

Yet so at last then you will gather
These odd bedfellows under one leaky roof
Those who were my true decendants
And a pox on “friends and family”

And – if you got this far
Don your hiking boots
Go carve your own trek
With my blessings

No Words

NO WORDS

No words of healing
Words are not what is needed
For the heart’s sickness
