The Old Guy … Old Man …

Old Man

.

Old man sitting alone in the dark.

What was just yesterday,

Now a long distant memory.

Oh, the past lurks behind all of us.

.

In silence, rocking endlessly,

Without direction,

Without purposeful intent,

Without a breath of protest.

.

Old man sitting in the dark,

Watching the parade,

Of unrealized hopes, denied ambitions,

Of dreams that withered and died.

.

The darkness hides so much,

And can be a Master speaking softly.

But the light of day still whispers promised truth,

To an old man sitting alone in the dark.

I was told by my grandfather that if you are destined to hang you'll never drown. I have never been afraid of water . . .

  5. ‘But the light of day still whispers promised truth’. I am clinging to this line. Your beautiful and poignant poetry, your great eye for photography make this blog a place I love to return, if only to say hi 🙂 Please keep writing. You have so much to say about the dark nights and sunny days, and you don’t want your camera get rusty too 🙂
    Wishing you a peaceful and light Christmas! ❤

  6. Thank you Ms inese … don’t get to take many photographs these days. I have had two falls in two months plus a very bad cold. Fortunately, I am doing better. I am thinking out and planning a new project but it is going to be in the Spring. I am working on a series for the County library which has been interesting. I plan to no fall and keep healthy. Have a wonderful holiday season. I send you a prayer and a smile for Christmas. g

  7. So sad. But there must be more. The morning sun should bring new plans and new hope for smiles.
