Seven am

Old man,

fragmented

incisors,

he says he was up at 530.

That’s what keeps him going

at

89.

 

Bird badges

Pinned to his lapels;

He offers

Maisie some

Kibble.

 

She,

Surprised

At this Sunday morning

generosity

Is at first puzzled,

Then scoffs.

 

We talk of

War Horse

Who lives

Along the way.

  1. Early bird catches the worm?. Awake at 5.30am and fragmented incisors – both ring a bell! 😯
    Guess Maisie Scoffs as in devours ( not refused contemptuously!)?
    Good old boy – the horse 🐎 – did you have polo mint/apple in your pocket?
    Happy sunny Sunday mornings. Porridge with blueberries?
