Vienna-meetings of

Poet and his spouse

A daily ritual that brings

Together a couple of

Fifty-one years

Thru’ ups and downs

Thru’ ebb and flow

Of physical and mental

Highs and lows.

Since five years of fights

And strain

Living in a bed-sitter.

An instant understanding


When the poet has been

Offered a night-job

Watching an elderly friend

Who has been recently

A victim of an epileptic


From lunchtime onwards

When the couple shares

Coffees and juices

Water and Moroccan mint


The poet invites his spouse

T a well-seasoned sandwich

At a super shop


They enjoy late lunch on


In a pleasant atmosphere.

At the exit they run into

Their friend Pierre

Who has finally received

A finally printed copy of

His book of portraits of

Famous personalities

He had photographed with

Great artistry.

Well done Pierre.

Fashion creator.


He is proud of his work

Showing them a copy

In a nearby café.
