Generation Gap

shiney sax
youngster brash
honkin' and squawkin'
shellacking a tune

"When Sunny Gets Blue", I think

she's wailing and flailing
with hot mustard gusto
and slap-happy swing

it's 6:00 am

I'm wishing she were older
caressing the tarnish
and weathered lines
in breaths long,
slow, and sure

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


Oh! those damn memory flashbacks, I still hold onto even with the weathered skin and laboured breathing lol
Loved the write it was but a flash, so will not dwell there it may bring new tears to these old eyes,
Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

I didn' forget you. Just running late again. I don't know how that happens! I am retired, now living alone, stay home, don't have too many chores, have no appointments, no funerals to attend...and still I run late!

so... thanks for taking your precious time to stop's good to have some company now and then.

regards, from my hermitage
