New Beginnings - a shadorma



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

I Scream

The stars outshine a pale moonbeam
We try in vain to touch our dream
We live each day
To hope and pray
We shall end it all with ice cream!

Reborn

Anticipating
a relationship reborn
on a skeleton 
where love is the support, 
two yearning souls seek wholeness,
prepared for the pains of growth.

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

RETIRED RAM

There once was a ram who retired,
who really was terribly tired.
Having serviced the lot,
he should have have been shot.
But the gun thankfully backfired.

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.

Rusted, but well oiled and continuously in use, heaven’s gate.

Ahhh Retirement



This life of retirement sure is a blast But can never remember when I went last Tried to act coyly And not to be noisy Then bombs away like a huge birthday bash

Trump Healthcare

America's seniors
Paid their taxes when due
But retired on pensions
That favored the few

Now County Clerks
Have made that quite clear
Under "Cause of Death:"
(Enter your Senator here)

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?

LEAVING THE PASSENGERS BEHIND

LEAVING THE PASSENGERS BEHIND

chartreuse
                  caboose 
footloose 
                  vamoose

The overworked     chartreuse caboose     spun,
ran off the track    footloose     vamoose     done.

A Sleepover

If I but find a deep dark cave in some remote a cove
Oh, I’ll curl up on a bed of leaves and hibernate like the bear
to lie dormant all seasons through in this sweet sanctuary.
