Waiting

DSCN1373Sitting in the Coffee Shop

Waiting.

Waiting?  Why?

Why?!  Why?!

 

Sitting in the Coffee Shop

Waiting.

Waiting?  What for?

For what?!  For what?!

 

Sitting in the Coffee Shop

Waiting.

Waiting?  Who for?

For whom?!  For whom?!

 

Sitting in the Coffee Shop

Waiting.

Waiting?  Who says?

 

Sitting in the Coffee Shop

Waiting.

Waiting for Death

For Death is her Husband

Death is HER lover.

 

“I am an Enigma”.

Says Death.

“I may come from any direction

From anyone

Anywhere.

I may already be there

Hovering……”

Ghostly. ‘Til…

image

Ghostly.
A blurred image
Clouded
Unfigured figure
Masked in apparent reality
Like a snap-shot
Taken with unsteady hand
Shaking.

Ghostly.
A mirage
Surreal
Defigured figure
Masked by apparent reality
Like a picture
Figment of a thought
Trembling.

Ghostly apparent apperation
Figmented surreal figure
Mystified by the mist of imagination
From the physical realism
Of what is there and what is not…
Like a badly done photograph
Caught by camera unsure…
Better left alone.

‘Til the breaking of the Dawn.

A Place For All

image

The smell of mince pies, freshly baked
Assailed the air
Challenging one to not smile
While listening to the banter
Of those gathered around tables
Restaurant style
Awaiting the fare.

Breakfast was over, dishes removed
By cards and board games
Challenging the brain
While music in the background
Streamed from the kitchen
Uninteruptedly
Just loud enough to hear.

image

Drop In!
For a hot meal, a drink
Coffee Tea Water Milk
Fresh Juice and food prepared
By cheerful pleasant Volunteers
Who mind their own business –
Unless invited yours to share.

Not to say they don’t care
For why else would they be here
From the crack of Dawn?
No, they merely know their places
As cooks and scrubs and servants
Big brothers and aunties and mothers
And helping hands.

image
Lunch bears no pretenses
And holds no shame
Just solid fare brought to table
With a smile and no blame
While sandwiches bagged earlier
Wait on the counter
To be later given away.

image

Old young pretty or thin
Hard of hearing
Black white or gray
Eloquent stuttering or dumb
Or even sight-impaired,
Alone single or coupled
No discrimination here.

The Tab Centre, they call it
A place for all, they say
Where friends can meet and relax
In a kindly atmosphere.
Where once you’ve been
You leave recharged
And go happily on your way.
