“aging gracefully” – original inspirational poetry
featured in “Nice Thing ‘Bout Getting Old(er)“
if the words endure, they do so because they link the links –
starts with being
as a child.
The scrapes and hugs
blend into a smoothness of
being in the world.
a young person
both that yes more
is to be learned and seen
but willingness is taking the road
with firm steps of faith.
in the middle years
to meals and car rides and
nights spent sitting by a child’s side
the old(er) years
finally see that
being in the world is
being in our world
and rising clouds with
passing winds in changing
lights of days and nights.
the breathing of the passing of our seasons.

as i mentioned yesterday, in the commentary to my poem, grandma, this week, i post a review of an article from the himalayan institute on aging
the article is titled, “aging gracefully” and the title has seemed like a pesky if beautiful butterfly refusing to be content with flitting around and about me, til i penned this poem 😉
just goes to show, as the article tomorrow will point out, emotionally internalizing our intellectual leanings, is, a challenge –
and, as i often like to remind myself, a process 😉
namaste´- con dios – god be with you
