Ripe Old Age

Ripe Old Age prose poem

Photo by dannysoar

We will all live
to a ripe old age.

If not here,
then probably
over there…

If not over there,

then defiantly
someplace else….

The mind is
at once….

Experiences vary….

When I die in one place
the others simply
move on….

We will all live
to a ripe old age….

Silently you went to disappear in blue – alone or unalone – I was watching a moth on the burning lamp in night way scrawled flat as death’s signature on the heap of broken wings, between space and time an

The Old Lady
