O the circle of life

early this morning the rain started


and then it stopped 

now  resumed at a steady modest beat.

we are happy having recently transplanted a chilli bush from elsies next door neighbour who went off to hospital a month ago and is not coming home.

else is very upset because her and frank who lived in the flat opposite were friends

him in his seventies and her nearly 30.

being italian with a maltese grandmother and one of seventeen children frank loved to cook and regularly fed else who as yet doesn’t love to cook and joy of joys it was all the things she loved like pasta pastizzies etc

she listened to his stories was called over to have  dinner with his family when they visited

and cuddled his grandchildren. 

from his hospital bed frank has made sure that else got the sandwich maker and a heap of knick – knacks. 

 we wish him well and a peaceful and dignified departure from this realm.

O – the circle of life
