Doorstep Of Belonging

Abba would have turned 76 on June 16, 2012. Here's a poem for him from me on his birthday.

Dew on the doorstep of Belonging
Smeared with a laidback smile.


Fragrant memories, soaked in
Wisdom, imagination and wit
Caresses buds of attachment.


Clouds are ominous and grave,
I hear unhurried footsteps,
Unafraid and unaffected.


Surprises will always
Be in store in the quest
For the unobvious.


Left hand in the left pocket,
Friendly hand on the shoulder;
Humour and poetry
Permeates the pregnant air.



A year has gone by,
Not just another year
But the year that matters.


Gateway to sleep is closed;
Dreams have new wings,
The dew-drops Linger on....
