Sweetest Wine

Reblogging an old post for Tale Weaver #163 – “What does aging mean to you?”

Writing and Reflections



they said

Offering the sweet spirits

from the Fountain of Youth

My refusal

made clear

as the ornate goblet

crashed to the ground

Wouldn’t trade

shiny locks, long and luscious

for my  ever emerging

streaks of gray

Not for a moment

would I take back

these fine lines

creeping across my face

I welcome

these new aches and pains

that now greet me

each morning

Fountain of Youth?

They can keep it

I’ve discovered the Wine of Wisdom

Best served with a side of Experience
