age, cat, life, wisdom,
Each day Annie Lesley opened a can
Her eighty-six-year-old hands trembling
As she sat with her cat and ate pet food
What is wrong with this elder’s rendering?
These Eyes Have Often Been Solaced
age, love, romantic,
These eyes have often been solaced
by twilight's cotton candy pllows moving silently
towards a sky's velveteen blanket
and angels'silver gowns
By gazing over hills
to where old country...
THE MALE MENOPAUSE - please feel free to join in the collaboration
age, body, humorous, men,
Ted’s libido has now gone astray
He refused a quick roll in the hay
So what could be the cause -
It’s the male menopause...
The Irony Of Fate
age, desire, fate, irony,
In a moment of juvenile jealousy
he envies his red rival
with its intimate and greedy embrace of her angels’ share
of honey and vanilla spice
Ageless Seeds Of Simple Joys
age, appreciation, happiness, hope,
When walking in splatter of Spring's anticipated rains
blessed is the youth in you, if wearing no shoes;
further given if you can then see rainbow hues
A Hundred Springs
Some days I feel so damned old
Like my zest is starting to mold
Seems my feet are always cold
My golden years ran out of gold
I Don't Believe In fairytales
Like an evening sun
I settle by the lake
Wearing nothing but my thought
as I recall your name.
I recall last moments
Green shades where we have been
Jesus was Turkish
age, animal, bible, inspirational,
A strange claim
Of a man of passion
Let the children come to me
For what man would refuse the smile
The innocence of a child
The Shadow of Me
age, love, me, old,
It was a long time ago, in another age
Where the shifting of the wind
Knew where I began
A place so far away,
Somewhere distant, in childhood...
Sands of Time
age, life, time,
A t f i r s t, a l a z i l y f l o...
age, metaphor, relationship,
Take me there to yesterday's Summer night.
Walking on the beach,
sand between our toes,
hair blowing in the breeze.
When ripples in the sea,
slowly cleansed the sand,
The Four Seasons
age, allegory, allusion, seasons,
The Four Seasons…
It was spring and I was young when I had wine.
I was singing and dancing and doing fine.
The wine was so divine,...
It sits upon my widow sill,
after all of this time,
the Magnolia bloom you sent
Wilted and shriveled,
once the purest white -
now browned with age
Musings - Sucker Punched
age, humor, life,
I can't recall exactly when
Life swung and hit me on my chin
I"m ashamed to say, it knocked me cold
When I came to, I woke up...
age, funny, nature, society,
leaves in the trees
an old man sitting
on a bench
and thinks of his youth
sitting on a bench
age, beauty, blessing, judgement,
"bag of bones"
I wonder if when you look at me
You can't bring yourself to like the vanity
Lost somewhere inside...
age, love, soulmate,
We are polar opposites trying to connect,
Walking through a field of land mines.
Sometimes we don't make it through
Without becoming a bit maimed.
I am the steadfast...
one broken monoku
one feeble couple barely survives
It's only time
age, devotion, emotions, teenage,
For the lark she sings in her morning song,
That brightens up my day.
The pitter patter of tiny drops,
Clouds fill the sky with grey.
The dampened ground,...
Time is boundless when you're young.
You want school days to fly
so in summer you'll be sprung
loose upon the world. Touch sky,
Butterfly! Vitality is yours; songs...
Dust From The Past
age, memory, people, sad,
Looking back again, back into the past,
it was written in sand, all those questions we asked
on those last days of summer, something was wrong
age, crush, earth, emotions,
I close my weary eyes
I quake and tremble
The meaning of life losing its hold,
Losing its wonder
In this magnifying, mystifying Sadness
Where is the river,
Life's Fading Light-Part 2-Heroic Crown of Sonnets
For in the end it's just one soul that's passed.
Alone I'll lie in sod of greenest grass
to answer for the sins that I've amassed
Life's Fading Light-Part 1-Heroic Crown of Sonnets
age, death, love,
When orchids bloom in beauty life's aglow
to hold emotions locked in deep repose
in young desire and love warm thoughts will show.
Affection holds its ardor as...
Time marched ahead relentlessly,
While I was unaware.
I jogged around the corner and
Old age was waiting there.
I didn't want to meet her,
But had to be polite.
