Robert Nisbet


He is in a small cottage facing West
to a sun declining over a Welsh mountain.
He has done little, in craft, in enterprise,
today, this last month.

He has had earnest relationships,
few of which will now renew.
There will still be callers from the village.
Otherwise, quietness.

Tonight, easing into reflection
with the one whisky he allows himself,
he watches the sunset, mulls images
in lemon light.

    Such a nice “still” slice of life piece. I’ve enjoyed the read.
