Being Home

Being Home

A Poem by Paul Bell

A guy with a bald head passed by my window

Pretty blond girl too

Old lady with a frown

Two kids falling down

A Priest doing something two metres from a window

That’s pretty weird, hope it’s not, surely no

Police car reminding us all

Should you be out

Food truck stopping outside number 4

Old Mrs Jones who I swore died years ago

I really need to get out more when staying in outside the door

Big Jim with the limp

Or as his wife says, limp Jim

The evil twins who used to be five

Now look about twenty

And now they can drive

Okay the Priest is coming my way

Bless you my son in this trying day

Have you got anything to say

Oh, father I do

That blond girl at number two

Is she self-isolating alone

I could give her a phone

You dumped my sister you cad

You will definitely get it bad

Should I mention the food truck reversing back

Maybe whisper it

That two metres distancing

The demise of father Jack.

What a wonderful piece of fun: by the window, seeing how it is where you aren't Way to be and see the local world, its people and their hidden biogs! Little morsels add flavour, don;t you think when time uses your hands as a choice of two hammocks.

' Big Jim with the limp - Or as his wife says, limp Jim - The evil twins who used to be five - Now look about twenty = And now they can drive = ' There has to be another poem or two there in those few lines!'

Read aloud, has a clear message, tells a 'how it is where I'm at here and now ' - visual. Thank you so much for sharing.

a smile in tough times...funny what we notice when we actually are forced to have the time and attention to the details we miss in our hustle and bustle lives.

You're right, Jacob, I've come across a brand new fraternity.

I like poetry and stories that tell me something. Sometimes the shortest poems hit the hardest. If I post something serious, don't worry, a funny poem will follow. Don't hesitate to tell me if my po.. more..
