SOLITARY TRAVELLER

SOLITARY TRAVELLER

I walk my journey in this world,
This life of mine, alone.
I may have friends, but who are they
Inside their skins, inside their heads?
Are we ever more than strangers,
Nodding acquaintances?

I know I guard my inmost feelings,
Afraid to expose my limitations, my flaws,
Lest these strangers be not worthy of my trust.
Yet there are some I feel I have known forever,
In previous lives,
And others I should really know, but do not.

RETIREMENT HOME # 1

The flowers are bright and the grass is green,
I smile to myself when
I see little old ladies and little old men
Gather on their porches viewing the scene.

RETIREMENT HOME # 2

In the morning gloom
Of the sitting room
The old ladies sit dressed
In their Sunday best
Waiting… for what?
They know not.

The Beauty Parlour

Fritz - clean and cut

The Beauty Parlour

After a few months of neglect,
I’m ashamed to say I do concur,
My little knotty ball of fur
Dirty and bedraggled,
Had to visit the beauty parlour.

What a metamorphosis awaited me –
I barely recognised my boy –
Tail feathers wagging in joy,
Bright black eyes exposed,
Red tongue tip, and little button nose.

The Healing Power of the Sun

The Healing Power of the Sun

‘Twas difficult to find a time and place
During days and weeks of rain,
But now the weather has provided space
For me to sit cocooned
In the warmth of the sun’s embrace.

The gentle touch of a cool breeze
Barely felt on my naked skin;
I sit encased in a wonderful peace,
While the sun’s warmth soothes
The ache of muscles freshly pressed.
