returning . . .

the venerables

refuse to head

into winter sleep

au contraire

they emerge from

cosseted lairs

gravitate by

bus train foot

to city north

for a moment

gaze back

towards their cocoon

not too late

to revert

into locked known

but no - falter

forward - shuffle

up the square

stand before a

georgian splendour

on one more push

ascend granite steps

Grief is experience through the mundane. Simple but powerful. The accompanying image really compliments the poem.

Hi Peter,

A great observation! Social media can be a scary place... I also need to reduce my time there

A great one, Peter, in the context you describe. I don't read social media myself, I doubt my equilibrium could stand it. 'The balance of his mind disturbed' yes, I think it would be.

Yes, gossip is a weapon of mass destruction.

In my business as well as personal life I have zero tolerance.
