Such a polite and charming way to tell a modestly vain old codger his age. Good job he had a train to catch. Your reality poems are so good, Trevor. Yours aye…David
An old man on a last nostalgic journey through the haunts of his childhood and youth meeting by chance the daughter he's reluctantly promised not to admit to, to the mother who had, when rejected, made a new life and family with another man. The key words are “pink silk sheets” and “Keeping my promise to her mother..”
Yes, reality, but no smoke or fire! Honest! Hahahaha!

Absolutely beautiful and moving Trevor. No wonder you are among my very favourite poets here or elsewhere. It brought tears to my eyes.
This will go down as one of my very fav poems.
How mellow we can become with age and what wisdom can come and take the place of youthful exuberance.
A truly tender emotive piece that moved me deeply. Fact or fiction you have delved deeply into human emotions and life experiences.
I would love to buy a book of your poems.
Thank you, Alison,
for your fine comments and considering it a fav and the nomination, much appreciated. It is fiction, but who knows? Arranged it as prose first, but it looked a bit too thin and spread out, so changed it to prosetry style. Still working on my fictional psychological life story, about three-quarts rough copy finished, trying to keep a red thread continuance and lyrical style consistency, not easy!
Thanks again, really chuffed.

You are a star Trevor, when you write like this few can touch you, just wonderful stuff. Congrats on the Nib and the Nomination.
Thank you, Mike,
your fine words quite undeserving, but very encouraging and much appreciated. Got to catch up on your much needed straight spoken honest work! Thanks again for fine comments, glad it seems to have made the transit, again, really chuffed!
