The Old Man In The Chair
by Leo Warne

That old man in the chair
with the still, spotted hands
hunched over on his porch
and gazing into nowhere.
His youth has ran,
on the ground he lands.
No one seems to care,
and onto them, his dead eyes stare.

Reminiscence Again
by Pijush Biswas

Though the day I had at it's fill
Only you the one come by my way
And rather the old friends did conceal
Behind curtain, on the day.

Later Sun rise, after all, on you
Half hidden from the shine I call
As the withered leaves by dew
Restore itself, next to fall.

Glimpses of My Mom
by Richard Randolph

'You look something like him.'
'Mom, I'm your son Rick.'
'Oh, my Rick! ' she exclaims.
She reaches out her hand, and I take it gently.
It's cold and I can see blue veins just beneath the skin.
'How are you doing, Mom? '

Along the road of ignorance.

Listen, thou child I used to be!
I am enlarged where thou wert bound,
Though vaunting still that thou wast free,

Blooming Beauty
by Bhaskaranand Jha Bhaskar

Almost withered, the lean, leafless flower
Smiles in half of twigless green
Like an aged woman
Banished from the heaven of beauty--

Smiling as a gesture to shower, in vain,
The sprinkles of youthfulness of expired skin,
Rusting in ageing bony pits
As if left in lurch like an exploded balloon!

Dining Room Chair
by Gabriel Sanchez

Unvarnished and worn by age
see it slouch by the wall,
its silence sharper than the kitchen knives.

We rely on something or someone sturdy.
Facing the candlelight at meals, he holds her
to resist the decay of ashwood

until it breaks at its last supper.
He knows where the kindling goes.
