“A Sunday full of couch” | Sydney Poet David Landgrebe

25 Nov

My backside is numb like a drunken teenager, it’s been
Hard pressed against a Sunday full of couch, I’ve pulled
The pin on the promise I made about a day outside in spite
Of the seamless sun drenched skies, and the sound of a
Intermittent bird song delivered to me by a sympathetic
Summer breeze, I decided to remain welded there between
Cheeks and couch, and do bugger all but enjoy the company
Of a good book, a smidgen of Shiraz, and the little wet snout
Of my canine friend nudged resolute beneath my elbow.

    Good to hear from you again David. With temps in the teens here yesterday (Sunday), yet sunny, I could have ventured out, yet puttered and napped indoors all day…except to go out to fill the wild bird feeders! Cheers!
    Stop by and visit my posts! Diane

    Well, I can certainly relate to your poem David. Welcome back to this realm of words. You are so adept at conjuring images and feelings. Many thanks. Shelley

      Thanks very much Shelley, It has been a while since I last submitted a poem, but not for lack of desire, but the lack of impetus!
      and with encouragement like yours, I should put pen to paper.
      Many thanks. David. L
