embracing my wrinkles
fine lines around these eyes
took a lifetime
to earn

for them
am adept
my manner sophisticated
for them
am wise

power lies in me
to what these wrinkles suggest

a little of my age
or many of my triumphs

  1. Excellent poem. You use words well. Welcome to WordPress. Just jump in and begin to find the blogs you like and others will find your blog also. I invite you to visit my blog. I have been blogging for almost 4 years now and I have met the nicest people. Have a good weekend. Hugs, Barbara

  2. Reminded me of the book “A Picture of Dorian Grey” I for one, am glad that my life shows on my face. It reminds me when I look in the mirror of the long road I am traveling that there are rocky spots and smooth down hills where I can go “whee! all the way down, with the joy of living!
