The old poet and red wine
The old man gets up early in the morning; he doesn’t
eat breakfast but drink coffee, switch on the computer
look at the blank screen waiting for a word to come
so he can try writing a poem; it is a hard going so he
mounts his training bike and get some exercise.
Noon is the best time of the day; he walks to his café
have a good meal and a jug of red wine, which puts
him in a good mood and talk to the old men in the park,
Sometimes one of them say something interesting he
can use when writing. The old poet knows his best
work is behind him, but he still tries to tease another
poem out of his mind. His evening meal is simple he opens
a tin of soup and drink a few glasses of red wine watch
TV, or makes comments on the Twitter.
