The Retired Bloke


Searching, searching

Searing heat soothed

By delicate summer showers

Calmness induced

By melodious medicine


Searching, searching

Cravings mitigated

By nature’s nourishment

Creaking bones eased

By lazy days on a sun drenched beach


Searching, searching

Anxious mind comforted

By a friend who listens without judgement or accusation

Stressed soul massaged

By a cool shimmering pool


Searching searching

Volume of life reduced

By wise words on a page

Connection with family bonded

By a compendium of life’s lessons


Searching searching

An infatuation with wisdom healed 

By seeking solace in others

Emptiness and loneliness filled

By connecting with the one that’s cherished


Searching searching

Until it’s too late....
