with heart to spare,
still here, writing and reading ~
though time’s had its say,
graffiti etched round eyes and lips,
a hitch or two in the get-along

still here, still here
heart to spare,
time for writing and reading,
not much else required ~
still in love with life

  1. I really enjoyed and related to this. Yesterday my husband and I were talking about the wonders of retirement. I am slowly figuring out the meaning of my life as I grow older – but just about the time that I get a grasp on it, I realize that I’m a little older and need to revisit the subject. 🙂
