Summer gone

Those whirlygig thingies that dropped from the trees and spun about like helicopters that danced in the breeze well I miss them. and the apples we scrumped the hedges we jumped the doors that we knocked on and ran away from just for a laugh well I miss them too I’d make a list of…

Father

It’s been a long time Albert, since we sat in the Yorkshire House, chatting and having a sherbet aye Forty seven years if memory serves which is more than the barmaid did when she found out I was sixteen. That was sweet beer but I’d swop an ocean of it if you could be here…

‘Back to black’

It mutters morning mourning all the mornings that have been. What should not have been became and not because it was although it was. A smell of woodsmoke stokes an ancient memory. But lost now in the statuesque hidden amongst the grotesque. Esmerelda . Who dared paint this picture of the ruins in Cathedral square?…

Sadness

You are sat watching the Sun set and you start to feel weepy wishing he’d sweep you off your feet like before, Alas the door has been closed no more episodes to come so you sit watching the Sun set…

Letting go

It’s about the eyes the way that they dance and sparkle like sunlight on the sea and they do it for me. Do you know how it feels when you kneel down to pray and the one up above says, Sorry she’s gone away? I do. I can do the fantasy thing better than anyone…

The confusing aspects

The garden’s not been weeded something she did when time allowed, the washing line was full of sheets that billowed in the wind one time when time allowed and here I sit where I always did doing nothing. Time allows me this as time took her and the things I miss. It’s not the same…

Genies

I wanted the bright lights, but the day started grey because as we all know Winter’s that way inclined. I don’t mind really I don’t, I won’t get upset I will get myself dressed then I’ll go out of the door and and Summer has gone, hasn’t it? no more soft lit suppers on the…

Diagnostic kit

Not much point looking back if you’re one of the pack only the leader will see anything there. Functioning in a dysfunctional way could be the ‘new black’, that’s if you’re not looking back at the sun as it rises. I used to and used too and used you to get through, but never saw…

“whynotno?”

One more cycle around the Sun and E=MC squared for some it is over only when it’s done and even then E=MC squared for some. but we did have fun dancing between the times that lined the streets of yesterday, drinking ‘K’ that’s bona fide electric cider or so they say. What beautiful colours that flash…

Death

We’re only tourists here for a visit on a one way ticket and now they’re punching it it’s not fucking fair. I never asked for short stay I wanted long term. Visa expired as I will be soon but we’re all only tourists here for a day…
