I walked the road of timeliness

I walked the road of timeliness

With patience in my pocket

On a rock I lit a cigarette

And caught my breath upon it

I looked from hillside to the sea

Old windows streamed around me

Strangers one and all observed

A righteous life had found me

I stubbed the butt into the earth

With my foot – now old and ageing

And looked toward my resting place

With friends – my presence – waiting

Slower than in younger times

When ‘swift’ (a clear description)

I stumbled past the steps I knew

And abandoned predilections

In older times – a bluster – blowing

Caught me – unbeknown

As seasons came and left behind

The scent of flowers – sown

A sense of reminiscence struck

Regard outlasts regret

I grew into my older years

Be bold – be better yet
