Pandorathon- 5-May 2020- TEN TO TWO

It was ten to two on the watch
And time was slowly ticking by
Somehow every tick matched my pulse
Making me more than anxious
After all, It was my first date with him
The table was set with muffins and tea
a tissue box and a flower vase
setting the perfect vibe I dreamed of
I heard a tick – tick and click-click again
This time , it wasn’t mine, but from the other end
He had arrived and took his seat
I looked down fidgeting with the seam of my top
While he chuckled and started a conversation
The tea simmered our concerns
And moments were savoured with bites of the muffins
It was almost five past thirty
When many childhood memories were recollected
Untold secrets were shared
List of favourites were chorused
And future dreams were prepared
There was a tick- tick and click- click again
But, it wasn’t me or him alone
Together we matched just like our walking sticks
Wandering one step at a time
