At her age of eighty five

it is a miracle to all

The fact that she is still alive

As  every week she  risks a fall

Thursdays she hangs out of her bedroom window,

to clean the outside of the glass

She has not fallen down yet, good for her

though a few times yes, she almost has

We all wait  for  disaster to occur

And today one seagull made  her work in vain

As he relieved himself  above  the windowpane

  1. What a great poem, it rings so true of elderley ladies who are very house proud even though they may not be as mobile as they used to be. A perfect reflection of my wife’s grandma who is in her 90’s and still cleans with vigour everyday!

    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment earlier today – yours is a great blog by the way 🙂
