At Last, Together Once Again, In The Solitude Of Ourselves... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

and so we just
ended as friends
after all those years
living together
suffering the same fate
in the same old house
of tradition

i told her
sleep by my side
i assure her
that her snores from
now on
shall not be disturbing

there is a sense
of longing in the forgiveness
of wrongs

a sense of hope in old age
praying for
a happy death
together

now we are left alone
by ourselves
as all of them, friends and kin
had all gone

breakfast is ready
you invited me
coffee without sugar
half a banana
a cup of rice
a slice of milk fish

an open window
with a view to the sea
a twig
with a baby owl on it

flapping wings for the
first time
eager to go away....
