Retired

I stayed out late until it was pitch dark,

I sat on the grass, reclining on the tree bark.

The noise of the city

Fading in the distance slowly.

I bask under the glow and beauty of the sunset,

I take in the view while listening to the House Sparrow’s duet.

I stretch my arms and legs, grateful for this moment

Looking forward to more days like this on my retirement.

Safe Room

I stay in my room where I’m safe

I’m safe

I’m safe.

I stay there to have space and time for myself

Myself

Time for myself.

I used to breathe around the house

Stretch

Relax

And just be still in the silence and rudimentary life.

Now I stay in my room trying to keep the noise out

Drown it all down.

So I stay in my room

The only place I feel safe.

A Sip Of Heaven

I stretched…up to the sky
Left the bed undone

Half awake and half in dreamland
Dragging my feet

And then an aroma
Sweet aroma
Familiar addictive smell

My eyes grew wide
My nose embraced it all
I hugged the mug with my hands
Took it in once more
And sipped heaven
