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….

Walking in mental fog, you become a swaying tree. In mistiness one becomes lonely like a blackbird. Hollyhocks would wait, till the sun comes out. December rain brings the gift― of sleet on lips. ————————————– Walking in mental fog, you
