The Old Guy … My Day …


My Day

,

I have had my day.

But can I truly believe,

How the seasons have passed,

On silent wings,

And forgotten whispers,

With the days long or short,

Meeting … one into another.

.

Yesterday,

I was a lover of life,

Of women, spirits and song.

I collected all the prerequisite sins,

of youth,

Along with the disappointments,

And tenfold heartaches.

.

In my day,

Bravado proved fleeting,

And my youth fell through my fingers,

Like fine grain sand.

Cries of protest into the darkness,

Disappointment and despair,

Evaporated into the days long past.

.

Yes … I pushed the edges,

Of life outwards … yesterday.

I felt the wind on my face,

And laughter rode my lips.

There was no thought of fear,

Or anxious moments, and …

Few regrets looking towards tomorrow.

The Old Guy … Sailor Man …


Sailor Man

.

I was once a sailor man,

Young and proud.

With no fear of a restless sea,

On many a menacing day or night,

Steadfastly turned to face an ominous wind.

.

High seas,

Pitch and roll,

Relentless and unforgiving.

Life and death below,

Forever dark and deep,

Waiting and hauntingly vigilant.

.

War and peril,

Were shadows that threatened,

From a distant horizon.

Oh restless waves I prayed,

Have mercy on the young and proud.

.

I was once a sailor man so many years ago,

Filled with youth, spirit and fire.

And on a lonely sea,

Deep into an endless night,

Too much time to think of what could be.

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.

The Old Guy … Thinking Of You …

Thinking Of You

.

Today I woke thinking of you,

Wanting to hold you close,

Feel your smoldering warmth against me,

Wanting to never let you go.

.

Close, ever closer,

I want to share your mysteries,

Your loves and passions.

To be a part of your day …

To be a part of you.

.

In the low light,

Your beauty is beyond my words.

I feel your heart racing.

And I am silent in the moment,

Overwhelmed.

.

This early morning full of hope,

I celebrate our shared smiles,

Your tender touch,

Soft spoken words of passion,

And whispered … delicate promises.

The Old Guy … Celebrating Afternoon Pie …

In our group of friends and relatives … the term ‘Pie’ means it’s time for dessert. This would be with or without ice cream. 

Unauthorized Cousin Gene … exhibiting a familiar pattern of avoiding authorized photographs. This avoidance behavior seemed to have invaded the afternoon Pie ritual.

Cousin Gene’s sweetheart … Unauthorized Ms Kathy …

The Old Guy joining the epidemic. 

Finished (my part at least) … A perfect end to a memorable treat. The tea was excellent also.

The Old Guy … Who Knows …


Who Knows

.

Who knows what lies behind,

A woman’s eyes.

What unspoken mysteries,

And intrigues,

Just behind sultry lips.

.

What can a soft touch tell,

Of the possibilities,

Romance or adventure.

And delicate whispered words,

Ride gently on a hope or promise.

.

Who knows what lies behind,

A woman’s eyes.

Whispered words,

From shadowed smile,

Speaks of things that make the heart race.

.

Come to me my love,

Touch my heart,

With your loving spirit,

Make me whole,

And alive again.

.

In the shadows and soft moonlight,

Passion burns deep within,

From tender embrace,

And soft hands moving slowly,

Closed eyes are knowing.

.
