Colors of Aging

Shimmering streaks of silver shine on wisdom's crown. Yellowed skin sagging with time once was smooth and golden brown. Brightly colored memories stream thoughts of long ago, Amber harvests, lush at day's end, we each reap what we sow. Days of gray and darkest nights create an infallible stance. Bright azure, laughing skies chase emerald eyes longing for a dance. A lifetime of dew-kissed rainbows, regrets of scarlet are but a few. Glowing confetti candles spark and float on blessings of true blue. Ev'ry day becomes a hue in mind as beauty fades from aging face. Vivid expressions of joy and love, rich colors lie in folds of grace. By Rhonda Johnson-Saunders For the Paint the World Contest, July 20, 2012
