In the bin

Time for a de-clutter , make some room
in drawers and shelves,
Feng Shui folk swear that it makes
one feel good about oneself.
These trainers from my glory days
of racing round a track
now swopped for orthopaedic shoes
that help my calves and back.
That old...Read More

Winding down
Babbling talk of unknown words
Striking precious objects with damaging knocks
Deep cuddles to obtain wishes
Swopped roles for flying trains and planes on tracks
Familiar noises for new things
Questions by noises that are not understood

Swopping positions
The oldest patriarch in the close family 
Wise, historic, brave and a quiet shroud of dominance
I grew, I matured, I aged
He shrunk, he slowed, he aged
Age and frailty grew:  worsening health
He held my arm as we walked along
I was...Read More

And the plain blue sky spanned on either sides
With snow-white flakes drifting religiously
Over light-green steeples into a land

very lush ladies
they swopped some
hunting stories

As the fire started
to die down
thoughts turned to
spooky things
headless horsemen

The friends im with now soften the craving to drink
Had enough of the alcohol the smell and the stink
As i write down these words my friends kick in
The craving for a drink is strong but i wont let it win
