All Poetry Contest Winner Aries aka Kath Piels Congratulations!


Shuffleton's Barber Shop

Missing image
  Small boys walked with awe
  when approaching, nearing
  Shuffleton's Barber Shop
  They stood transfixed, on tiptoe
  peeping through smokey window panes
  Listening, hearing soft murmur of male voices
  an occasional chortle with mirth
  On colder days the warming glow from a pot-bellied,
  free standing, stout black stove,
  reflected upon the window's glass
  The Barber's cat sat sleek, friendly, content
  ever alert for movement of a mouse
  At times there would be produced
  a mouth organ, violin, piano accordion
  to unite play, sing in joyous harmony
  A barber pole of spirally painted striped red and white
  hung proudly outside the front door
  Children watchful, as bushy beards were trimmed
  hair smartly snipped ,cut and faces lathered, shaved
  Counting days, weeks, months when they too
  could sit in that special chair, in such a hallowed place
  Shuffleton's Barber Shop
