well I never thought you were a malingerer

I also enjoy your posts very much.

1963

I looked in the small bowl

in which I keep small coins

ones

twos

fives

tens

twenties ( for my candle in the chapel)

I use them to get to fifty two

and this is for my wild-card bet

on numbers (49's)

in the bookies

I have a genuine half-pence

one half of an original coin

which I found

I found myself looking

at the date

1963

and knew it was bait

I am a memory hunter

fisher of pasts

1963

I came back from two years in the East

to be married

1963

I was a stranger

but didn't know it

my daughter was born that year

I am long divorced

and my daughter is sometimes distant

too much like me perhaps

Fragile inner

eggshell outer

fossil

of '63 .

Walk soft

stay safe

and

as ever

Vaya

con Dios

Samarkand.

some wounds

never heal.

I can’t stop collecting goodies myself.

The poem is a sad one but I see you get these thoughts out - Stops wounds from festering.

RETURN

it has been said

that when Constantinople fell

a party of the besiegers burst into a church

where priests were holding a service.

It is said that

the priests disappeared into the walls

never to return

till Constantinople is Christian again

and I wonder

if in all

the wild and lonely places

of my Caminos

those strange emotions

were the ghosts

of Sacred Yesterdays

looking for those

who may still hold a Truth?

I wonder.

Walk soft

stay safe

and as ever

Vaya con Dios.

Samarkand.
