Neville

Drop Me off @ the Next Stop

Drop Me off @ the Next Stop

 

Growing up takes forever

Whereas growing old

Seemed to happen overnight

    like the play between the title and the poem itself,
    sobering truths you penned

    • Neville



      ................... reading between the lines is a gift you have for sure ... thanking you kindly L.B and true ... Neville

      Hearts grow not old though skin starts to wrinkle and hope keeps the love-spots alive -- that is my offer to these three solemn lines...............x

        How bloomin kind you are dear Fay ... and I thank thee for eternity ... maybe ..... x

          Hmm - thee thankin' me for eternity calls for a Yes and not just a Maybe.

            Ha.. I hear that like snow, the Inuit also have fifty words for thanks ... so in order not to sound too repetitious or boring, I shall cut n past a few for ya Quyanaq ... Quyanaqpak ... Uqautchim Uglua ...

            All Good Things, Neville :)

            Perfect little shorty - the sort of poem that says so little in so few words - but then I'm a minimalist.

              ... thank you most kindly Michael and I mean that in a big way so I do ...

                The Bus driver says Destiny stops for no man. Growing old means you have a seat closer to the exit.
