Time alone to contemplate
A long beach walk at a leisurely gait
Cycling along at a steady rate
A coffee and chat with an old mate

Poems written in a humorous state
Ice cream and caramel served on a plate
Laugh with those who take the bait!
Chatting to those leaning on their gate

Teenage excitement on a first date
Unconditional love, never hate
Informed choices, don’t leave it to fate
Growing old disgracefully, not sedate!

What makes you feel alive?
