Lazy Poetry

Old woman sighs
In winter solitude;
A baby’s cry shatters it.

----------------------------

Rain falls ceaselessly
In its pitter patter.
The walls form a prison.

----------------------------

I wait.
The phone rings
And silences my thoughts.

----------------------------

Old age shivers
Middle age covers it with a shawl
The young look away bored.

----------------------------

Framed photographs and
Fresh flowers beside.
The decay smells.

----------------------------
