Old Age June 27, 2006

Filed under: Poetry — jojanoski @ 8:51 am

A poem about old age in cinquain format–syllable count per line–2, 4, 6, 8, 2.

Old age
Angry, red-faced
Pounding my mind’s front door
Screaming, kicking it wide open
Enters

Resist
Sing, dance, close-eyed
In step with life’s samba
Glittering white music til youth’s
light dims.

    Ok…you found the downside, but ya’gotta keep-on thinking young. It took me to my 71st years to realize I wasn’t 20; now I’m feeling older, but hanging in there – hop to raise the “old” age bar again, soon :o)
