MEMORIES, DREAMS AND DESIRES

 

Heather Jephcott writes



Love Waits

Love waits, love is waiting, patiently,
quietly, sitting down with legs already
fitted out with running shoes.
Love is waiting, ready to go.
What is love waiting for?

Love sits, love is sitting, thinking,
considering the best places, the best streets
to travel down, to enter with smiles and kindness
the most needy, and where the reception
will be open, not closed.

Love walks, love is walking, not hurrying,
there is excitement in the air,
a new day is here with people to care for,
ears to listen, hands to help,
time to visit, and some time too
to enjoy a little peace and quiet.

welcome to the zoo

anger  
is  
running 
through  
the  
people

hatred  
can't  
be far  
behind

we are  
nothing  
more  
than  
animals

Spring Cleaning



She is cleaning the windows 
for spring.


With sanitary wipes 
and a bottle of disinfectant.


Reaching high up 
so that her shirt lifts up 
exposing her 
backside.


Call me sexist if you like, 
but there is something about a woman cleaning 
that is insanely 
sexy.


Renoir 
thought so 
too.



I ask her if I can help 
and she says 
she is 
fine.


I ask her again 
with my arms around her waist 
and now she understands.
