Thank you and Goodbye

Dear Readers:

It is time to wrap up this website which will be taken down on August 31st i.e next month.

I truly appreciate your taking the time to read my scribbles all these years.

Reasons for this decision are mainly age and health issues plus continued maintenance is now an unnecessary expense especially as I’ve finally retired from work.

Once again, thank you very much

 

with warm regards

mind’s sieve

time drops
moments
through mind’s
sieve
~
retrievals
are hard acts
to follow by worn
limbs
~
limber mind
weaves fresh
moments
for cheer
~
thus we pass
time playing
cat and mouse
with time
~
time
will tell
they say, ears
eagerly wait
~
patience
is, was never
my strong suit, I
reach for jokers
~
cooling heels
doesn’t abate
worry’s flush
I go for broke

younger me

revisiting younger me
from over a decade ago
I gave a long searching
glance deep down
into her eyes
and mine
ferreting out
unsaid
unmet
unheard
correlating
with
met
heard
stated
and realized
I got more than what
I could bite
less than what
I could chew
which in essence
sums up
into a perfect
equation
always being fully
immersed in the moment
with nary
a rue
~
I bid her
adieu
embracing her one
more time knowing
one who meant the world
to “her” and she was her world
would be happy and finally
rest at ease knowing
her last child
had finally
come into own
with
an unsullied
heart
mind

filling heart

Filling heart’s coffers with joyous memories
I take heart, knowing it will be a long painful
haul back after second knee replacement
Soon to be..
Life
Is all about choices
Resolutions made, broken
Guilt ridden excesses
And pleasure enjoyed
Thereof
~
I do live
With pain
Yet
Mind and heart
Remain limpid
Clear
Light as feather
Roving
Giddily
Courting
All, sundry
In nature
As far as
Eyes
Can see
~

Surrounded by nature’s beauty
I replenish sagging spirit
Tad worried about enforced
Incarceration soon to be
brought
About by another overdue
Knee surgery
Unless I make
A run for the
Hills
( well if only I could run! Can simply hobble)
But spirit remains childlike all the time

crevices

Beauty gently
fills crevices
Inroad(ed)
by pain
Mind
Over matter
Rules
Above
All

~

Encompassed by warmth and beauty
Poetry has taken back seat
~
Eyes
Greedily drink in the incredible
Beauty of Sun, sea, coast
Locked in lover’s fierce
threesome neck to neck
