New Beginnings - a shadorma



   Freedom is,
   To break the shackles
   Of the yoke,
   That binds me.
   New beginings, no more work,
   Unchains liberty.

Short Retirement poem by Anna J Carroll| Details | |

No Praise

Resistant to all
No love in my heart
No care for anything
I'm ripping apart
No feelings for anyone
No passion inside
No sympathy still
No remorse to hide

Relax and Reflect

When the sun goes down in Cyprus,
And the heat of the day fades away,
Then it's time to relax and reflect,
Our life here is just what we expect.

The Insanity of the Old


Protected from the past, 
insulated in a box 
made of star-dust, 
closed where it 
points to the earth 
but open toward the 
vacuum of the sky,

why does he
bring the old world back 
when he creates his dreams?

Short Retirement poem by Steinar Gismeroy Olafsen| Details | |

Retired

Strolling around town 
At prohibited time 
Ignoring the church bell sounds
While I see people hurrying 
Down the sidewalk
On their way to work 

Think maybe I'll find 
Pen and paper
And have a coffee somewhere 

Or maybe not

Weekends

Saturday mornings

use to be fun

roller skate
and dancing
hanging out

meeting
with friends

Short Retirement poem by RUDOLPH RINALDI| Details | |

a package from Amazon

getting old
sitting on my rocker
waiting for mail 

a package
from Amazon 
with my first fast elder walker with seat

they say that this fast elder walker with seat
could last 
up to ten years to the day

I do pray 
that this walker 
is not my last 

and that it and I 
don’t go too fast

Tall Grass

Poet: Ken Jordan
Poem: Tall Grass
Edited by: Sparkle Jordan
written: August/2014


Some folks 
like
Beverly Hills -

But,

Beverly Hills,
ain't 
for me -

I prefer
a 
place

on 
the open 
plains,

where
Silos,
and
Windmill's

paint
the scene-

Where
Tall-Grass
is
green -

Short Retirement poem by Frederic Parker| Details | |

Evening on the Pier

Sunsets from the pier
They paint a string of reds
As the horizon spreads
Soon a soft gray

To be alone in thought
Where the pier and sea meet
Away from the loud street
To await night

Finding peace and quiet
Free from a working day
On this pier I will stay
Consumed by stars

Short Retirement poem by William Coyne| Details | |

Now, Now

Rivers I traveled for many a year,
then wide and deep, now shallow I fear,
more narrow than I remember,
trickled to creeks of early December.

My boat, long rowed, leaks on the shore.
I stroll the banks, not too much more,
gaze down the hill to watch the waters widen,
strewn with young rowers charmed by Poseidon.

Philosophizing

Retiring, they ask me
What do you do now
For a living that is

I'm a Philosopher, I say
Social Security encouraged me
They say, is there money in it

I charge Forty Dollars an hour
I say, used to that is
Now I sell it by the pound

How can I get some, they say
Have a seat, I say
Best forty dollars you'll ever spend

Haiku Collage: Retirement News

1.
colored leaves in yard
memories spice stew on stove -
sound of friend’s car door

2.
open sunny days
dandelion seeds float by -
all my options gold

3.
planting to be done
windows close doors swing open -
nature loves a hand

4.
my timetable now -
more rainbows can be enjoyed
green pastures shared

Short Retirement poem by Venkat Ragavan| Details | |

The exudate of charisma

I did with sinking heart, notice
Ask me what, and I will deliver sans prejudice.
Minus three from a decade being on precipice,
Yet hammered for erecting defensive rise,
His self-belief pervaded poll's vice.
Thus ploughed he, relentless and determined
towards staggering recordings of happy lies.
Finally he did recede, failing entry's justice.

Reflections: Midlife Crisis

P     aranoia permeates, etching itself into your fractured face,
A     cacophony of constant pressure; life remains a stressful race,
N     othing to hope for, no positives like promotion in the workplace,
I      nability to love, relationships lift anchor and set sail without chase,
C     hildren crushing dreams under mortgages; age grows with disgrace
!!
