Waiting for time take me for a ride

do you ever feel like this

“i’ve done what I can do —

now i will wait it out

i’ve done it all

desire for trips/ gone

desire to write books/gone

desire to eat out/gone

i want to be left alone/

to be a recluse

i like music if i can

understand words

don’t want

to start a new project

or do

what i did in the past —

it will never happen

not time left

nope, not time

just so little time left

should i build a rocking chair

or read books

by my old writer friends

who have

passed on

what to do, what to do, what to do

God knows how i feel

i think he is fine with it

we spend 3 hours each night

sitting in the living room

talking about old times

and new times to come

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
