Down in the Dirt has published two more of my poems, “Lone Foreigner Hiking the Walls of Seoul” and “An Old Man Visits His Wife’s Grave”.  Both were based on prompts in the Pensively 101 blog.  Pensively 101 is a great blog, the author publishes daily prompts, and I have been using these prompts to write several poems per day.

If You Have Been Around

Lone Foreigner Hiking the Seoul City Walls

seoul city wall

A Lone foreign male hiker
In the hills above the city
Hiking along the ancient Seoul City walls

525 years after the founding
Of the city in 1492

Balancing his walk
Amid the boulders
The winter is coming
Soon he thinks

And finishes his hike
Heading to a bar
To sake his thirst

Some soju and Bulgogi
Will do the trick
He thinks to himself

Just another day
In the life

Of an unknown. nameless
Foreigner in the city
Of Seoul

Part of the ten million
Naked stories
In the big city

An Old Man Visits His Wife’s Grave

 

 

 

 

An Old man
Goes to the grave
Of his beloved wife

Carrying her favorite flowers
And a guitar
Playing her love songs
As he remembers her life

Blaming it all
On the damn coronavirus Pandemic
Killing thousands every day
As politicians play games

The dead remain dead
He hears his wife’s voice
From beyond the grave

She is a corona ghost
He wishes he were there with her
As he plays his mournful love songs

He lays down for a moment
And becomes another Corona ghost
Just another death that lonely day
