    Grumpy Old Man... very wise ass and funny. I aspire to my own variation on this as the years mount up (no bitterness please though) . Thanks for the humor. S.

    Yawn....big've cured my insomnia....and again...if you've read one - you've read them all. Nothing new here.

Best Poem of Tony Jennett


I scour the cottage for signs of past presence
L ike a famished orphan at the erstwhile site
O f a long-spilled rice-sack, grubbing some essence,
V estige of sustenance. Hope gutters fitfully not quite
E xtinguished. I stroke reverently the seat-belt strap

Y ou wore in my vehicle. Your coffee-cup a Holy Grail.
O n my hearth a ghostly print, hazard-hap
U nder your leaning hand, now cold as winter's hail

A t a stranger's touch but under mine, burning
L ike the coals contained within. The wind,
W histled down by winter's inevitable ...

Waiting For The Train

Part of a trilogy about lost love which includes 'Nightwatch' & 'Landfall'
as well as 'Dawn' For the aftermath read'Waitng for the Train' & 'Crater'

What were you thinking of, waiting for the train?
Did you consult a timetable? Did your tortured brain
Precisely time departure? Did a long-borne tragic
Numbness calm your apprehension with its magic?
Or did the burning memory of things long past and gone
