our bench is rotting
moss-covered and leg buckling
but remembering

I am a sociologist and writer from Ireland. I have worked as a social researcher for 30 years and have had a lifelong passion for writing. My main research interests relate to health care and I love to write both non-fiction and poetry.

    1. Patsy, maybe it’s better that some things can’t talk as they have probably overheard all sorts of secrets ‘never to be told.’ On the other hand, it’s nice to think that inanimate objects have been witnesses to moments of great significance.

  1. I think we all have a favorite spot or place to sit, whether to meditate or have a chat with someone in our lives. Some sitting places are weather beaten while others offer a quiet place to enjoy nature. Mine happens to be under our grape husband and I have spent many happy moments observing and talking with family members on a warm summers day..

    1. Joni, I love the sound of sitting under your grape arbour.
      The seat in the photo is in a place here in Co. Waterford that I love and where tranquility reigns. It’s a place where I’ve shared many happy hours with special people in my life.
