Dichotomy

 

Old man’s a fool

Sitting on the porch

Talks only of the good old days

Frowns and lights his cigar.

No sense of a future

Just dread of tomorrow

And nothing right about today

Eyes still see, but can’t see far.

 

Little house next door

Old woman smiles brightly

Talks of good days ahead

Fresh blueprint is her tool.

Wind power, solar power

The possibilities are great!

She dreams of no more of war

Turns a smile toward the old fool.

Living in a large community (over 300 residents) of retired people over the age of 62... I see 'the old man' and 'the old woman' every day...and yes, it is a Dichotomy. Nice write.

Cheers,
Dan

A bit of a twist: the old man who seems so distressed about his life, may actually be happy being miserable. The elder lady may be, inwardly, unhappy because she was not born in the times that she seems to like so much. All together, they would probably make a lovely couple ... opposites do attract. Ha ha.

a great offering Dayvid!
How utterly important it is to live in our moments
our happiness...our hopes enriching us
and never to dwell in those ole days
which are the good ole days yes...but so is today!!

Every Day Matters
