The old man sits with stooped back.
The room is cold, just like his hands.
Thoughts have wandered like small children.
He wonders if he will see home again.

Thoughts have wandered home again,
with stooped backs and cold hands.
The room sits with the old man.
Like small children, he wonders if he will see cold.

Back stooped with thoughts, he wanders.
Like a child the small room sits, wondering.
Home again is cold.
The old man will see with his hands.

Thoughts have wandered with stooped backs.
The cold hands sit with the old man.
He wonders if he will see like small children.
The room is home again.
A cubism poem!

I like the interesting structure - first time I've ever seen something like this.

I was not familiar with this type of writing before. It greatly surprised me, in a good way, of course!

Fantastic! I've never heard of cubism poetry before, but it seems really interesting. Congrats on the DD, you certainly earned it :)

I really like how this is written. My grandfather has got Alzheimers, and it is impossible to understand what he is thinking about
