Reflection

As a young boy I still

Celebrated X-mas with

My family:

Mom

Grandma from father’s side

Uncle Miki – bro to my dad

Who married Mom for a

Joseph-styled life –

Living in celibate

Which I did not understand

In my state of ignorant

Innocence.

Today 62 years later

I’ve been exposed to a day

Of pain and misery

The state of a nervous suffering

Of my spouse

As she moves like quicksilver

Irritated by the slightest

Inconvenience

Annoyed by a word during

A discussion.

Tolerance is required by both

Spouses

One also needs to listen

Not to project one’s opinion

In continual opinionated talk.

Reflection.

After travelling the road of life

Together for 49 years

The year-end bells toll

For living apart

APART.TRAPA
