Contemplation

It seems as if in the last few months I’ve gotten away from fantasy poems, and ventured into a much wider venture of experiences.   I still love the fantasy poetry best, but like all artists, sometimes your mind just leads you to new places.  Hope you like them as much as the others.

I look back at the things I’ve done
As I sit back
in morning sun
and sip my coffee
steaming hot
and look around
at all I’ve got

And wonder what I’d like to change
while scramble eggs
atop the range
and hear the bacon
sizzle, pop
and look around
at all I’ve got

My children grown
and on their own
they long ago
left house and home
and turned into good women
men
I see them some . . .
just now and then

And look their photos
when t’were young
my daughter and
a laughing son
and feel their presence
through they’re not . . .
and look around
at all I’ve got

Yes, time has passed
and I’m alone
a smaller house
a smaller home
I pass the day
all thru the year
at dinner drink
just one cold beer
and watch the fire
crackle, burn
and think of all the
lessons learned
and look around
with deep felt sigh
and sometimes wonder . . .
wonder why

I turn the lights down
very dim
and think of you
on just a whim
and wish you were here
in my arms
so I could feel
your love and charms

And look around
at all I’ve got
as coffee cools
now cold
not hot
