A dream that has gone…

Long black hair brushed, I rush to the kitchen at dawn;

Haste thumps my heart awake.

My dream has gone,

Shrivelled hand falters through sparse grey hair, wrinkled lips quiver.

I realise…

Years have flown;

I have no chores to do, but painfully wait

For cards and calls as time limps in the aged care.
