Home stretch

By : K.D..

Views of  Rome 1

End of Friday, I float out, slide out, glide outside,
weekend feeling starts from first waking I confide,

One foot in front of another, quickens apace, work-gate in sight,
threshold crossed and happy stride full of departed delight,

Cars swerved, by fast-approaching buggies I am unnerved,
station observed, seat on the 2-free day 16.09 train reserved,

Disembark, footfalls skip a nifty 2-step through the post-work park,
the free-time frieze en route, a sanctuary breeze of homewards commute,

Those demons cars evenly spaced, at every turn they are placed,
but the finishing line streets dissolve as I brandish my relaxed resolve,

Safely settled in a cosy cuddle of creative mind, alligned, now to unwind,
thoughts to etch, ideas to sketch, inhaling hearty breaths of home stretch.

Sunday into Monday, the weekends fading light!

A Poem:


Dissolve

feelings fade
like the dull horizon
diminished by the sun
shades of orange
slowly turn dark
and bare themselves
like starlight
to the evening skyline
and the constant clamour of the countryside
decrescendos
into the babbling brook
and soft chirps of frogs
until once again
sleep comes
and a new morning
brings different light

Kassel D “and the constant clamour of the countryside”
