The Silent Old Man

Body bent and twisted
Gnarled fingers gripping his cane
Face weathered with age
An old man enters the bar
Perching himself upon the barstool
Ordering a drink from the bartender
Silently he sips one after another
As the time ticks away
Glazed eyes staring into nowhere
I watched expectantly
If only, his mind I could read
What magnificent stories would lie within?
Too late, I'll never know
As he wobbles out the door
Disappointedly, I take a gulp
And think of what might have been

Read the full of The Silent Old Man

Poem 1069

Delicious berries
Staining my hands as I pick
From the full bushes
Biting, juice squirts from within
Delighting my thrilled taste buds
