I have two this week.

I am my best self when I feel like a lunatic but I just don’t care..I think that might also be aging:)

New Dawn

she scribbles memories
as they emerge from the fog
dwindling recall
evident in speech pattern
in twilight, hopes for new dawn

For Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge where the prompt are synonyms of “Origin & Write” I used Dawn & Scribble

 

A Knowing

the blush of autumn
now long gone, a quiet grace
takes its turn in time –
through creaky bones, a knowing –
like spring vines set to run wild

Inevitable Journey

deep into autumn
color of the fallen leaves fade
gone are illusions
inevitable journey
a path we all have to take

In response to Carpe Diem Prompt #720, “if taken in my hand”

if taken in my hand
it would vanish in hot tears
autumn frost

OUR HOST

frost on the branches
melts in the early sunlight
life passes

my hair turned gray

as if it was the frost
on bare branches

For further inspiration there is a commercial running in our area that has a little boy asking,

“……how come no one wants to get old, I thought getting older meant living longer….”

Good question I thought. I don’t remember what they were selling but it had me reflecting, relates to this post I think.

Here is my response:

TIME

in moving through time

reflecting on life’s passions

no mourning for youth
