Aging Gracefully

Aging

gracefully

starts with being

loved

as a child.

The scrapes and hugs

blend into a smoothness of

being in the world.

Aging gracefully

continues

as

a young person

respecting

both that yes more

is to be learned and seen

but willingness is taking the road

with firm steps of faith.

Steadiness

in the middle years

adds grace

to meals and car rides and

nights spent sitting by a child’s side

while

the old(er) years

finally see that

being in the world is

being in our world

of changing

leaves

and rising clouds with

passing winds in changing

lights of days and nights.

Aging gracefully

is

the breathing of the passing of our seasons.

Commentary

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
