An Old Man - Poem by mina lotfi

an old man
a bare house
the big one, the red rose
cherries, and a pool
no water, no children
next door is a road
wet eyes waiting
simple house, simple heart
water drop, a table cloth
a bread, a chees, a date
and a wall...
over there a happy child
again an old man
alon with stick
it is my picture on water
which is crying silent and lonliness
a garden again cherries and rose
an old man is waking
it is end of his dream.

    i wonder if it is with design you have given it a cryptic sparse feel....

    but it creates a fab effect and lends so much meaning to the poem at many levels.
    loved reading it
    be happy
