The old man sits
In his rocking chair,
Wondering at fate.
He was a dancer,
An acrobat, darling
Of the wandering folk.
He’s not forgotten them,
Still tapping his fingers
To a beat in his mind
That played so long ago.
That the musicians
Are all gone,
If he’s the only one left who remembers
So he whistles alone
Along the dusty corridors
Between cobwebbed rooms,
With Ill-used feet,
In this forgotten place, in dreams,
He can almost remember
What those summer evenings
I’m putting all this up for the love of writing and your enjoyment, and if you would like to use it for your own purposes that would be awesome. However, it’s my writing, and I must ask you to ask me first, and credit me (obviously). Also, if you do I’d really love to see/hear/watch it!
If you’d like to support me, on a monthly basis, then i’d love you forever, and feel free to sign up for my patreon here – i’ll link the blog to here whenever I post something new, as well as a few extra snippets just for patrons (so extracts of WIP larger projects etc)
If you would also like to help me keep putting things up for free, and support my writing but would rather not do monthly donations, my paypal is:
Share, like, comment, critique, spread the word(s) and thankyou for visiting my page, you’re all wonderful.
I’ve also done recordings of several of my poems and stories, which are available on soundcloud here
