Silver Greys

Hair; whitening over time
Losing colour as the tints imbue inward
Into the soul; the spirit; the heart
Painting a picture of life
With the tonal brushes of history
In blends of black, brown, blond and red
Revealing the spectral panorama
That stretches out across a lifetime
Rich in unique yet poignant threads
The masterpiece behind the silver greys

 

Embracing Second Chance

Do you honestly think I’d trust you
After all you did to me
Do you think I’d take the time to walk
Over that old territory

Do you think I’d want to talk to you
To hold your hand again
To give a little more of me
Or friendship even feign

Do you think I’d go over old ground
Or stop to say hello
To brush under the carpet tiles
All history in one go

For what is done and what is said
Is etched in heart; in mind
So don’t expect me to forget
How you were so unkind

But know that I am so resolved
To turn my back on you
For all you were must dissipate
Be washed out in the blue

Or would that be the murky grey
The pit of wanton lies
Whatever, now I won’t return
And let the past just die

Take lessons learned and not digress
Be firm with foothold sure
To never let you seep back in
Be true to me once more

And then I’ll look to see the sun
Feel warmth against my face
And live life as it should be lived
A second chance embrace

Time

Time the fourth dimension
That gets us through each day
Ticking by second, minute, hour
To take us on our way

From past to present, future
It goes continually
From then, to now and onwards still
Into eternity

A measure of duration and
The gaps that fall between
Observed by calendar and clock
Yet never ever seen

And so by temporal measurement
Yet seldom just defined
Time walks its passage through our lives
And cannot be confined

Time

Baggage

I bear some heavy baggage
A load you well might say
Like tortoise with a shell on back
To go from day to day

And yet it’s not so weighty
As it is part of me
Amassed in all those ups and downs
As part of history

A bag with sturdy handle
And wheels that roll so smooth
As time has given it the chance
To fit into my groove

And so this heavy luggage
Is friend now over foe
To carry down life’s winding path
Whilst going with the flow

That Mary Poppins Feeling

That Mary Poppins feeling
As west wind starts to blow
As time comes to pack bags again
Raise brolly and then go

For when all’s done and all is said
When every job’s been done
The call from chimney tops sing out
With elements of fun

And lure of pavement flagstones
Or ride on string of kite
Bids now the time to sail on clouds
Soar upwards to new heights

 

Goal! (Haiku)

Setting a target
Focussing on a set goal
Scoring ‘gainst all odds

Reading

The mirror past invisibility
To see what otherwise might not be seen
The way to the destination
To visit places otherwise out of reach
The connection through space
To meet those otherwise never to be met
The key to the past
The portal to the future
The acquisition of knowledge; of language
And the hand of communication
Edifying mankind by text
