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.

.

The Old Guy … Cooking Something Different … Relaxing Lunch …

Relaxing Lunch

Side salad fixin’s. Fresh Lettuce, Cucumber, Tomato, Sweet Onion, Radishes, and Celery were chopped into a medium salad. Salt, boiled Egg Wedges, and Lite Sweet Vidalia Onion Dressing were added last.

An Onion Bun was buttered and pan toasted. The warm bun was given a covering of Miracle Whip, Swiss Cheese and Fresh Lettuce.

Layers of thin Ham are then added along with Bread & Butter Chips and Tomato slices.

Plated. A round toothpick with an Olive on top kept the divided sandwich sections from falling apart. A perfect combination of side salad and Ham & Cheese sandwich made for a nice relaxing lunch.

The Old Guy … Gentle On The Heart …

Gentle On The Heart

.

This new day,

A day of promise.

The warmth of the sunshine,

Makes the heart smile,

Deep inside … where memories rest.

.

That touch of comforting light,

On this restless soul,

Tasks one to sing with the wind,

And times long ago,

Finally rest gentle within.

.

I remain this day the sum of my passions.

Yesterday and today,

Walk together,

Speak of shared memories and hope,

Of mercy, grace and peace unbound.

.

The Old Guy … Images of Russell County … Reluctant Portrait …

Cousin Gene is in town and I thought an updated portrait was in order. Unfortunately at the diner, he was less than accommodating. 

So … catching him by surprise wasn’t working despite several tricks of the trade including, feigning a lack of interest and getting off a quick shot, sneaking up slowly with a quick point and shoot and of course shooting in the area of the subject from the table top while looking away from the subject. He was wise to them all.

Acting like I was making intricate camera light and shutter speed adjustments didn’t work either.

Almost … but last second awkward, but quick movements spoiled the shot.

Close but no Kewpiei Doll … 

An Unguarded moment … The Unauthorized Portrait …
