the elderly man

The elderly man walks
In the morning to town
With his umbrella he brings along
In case of rain

He will walk around
Looking at shops and sits in coffee shop
He will take his lunch at any eatery outlet
He will spend his time this way

By late evening when the sky is dark
He will walk back home
Along the way he will stop by
At the restaurant or Thai food

He will order his usual meal
Fried egg with plain rice
A bowl of soup and a glass of water
He seems to do this every day

We say hello
We go to the same restaurant
By recognition of the times
And I have seen him walking in town
