Old Age

How my aging bones creak
Sighs the  rocking chair under 
The burden of time.

    Thanks for introducing me to Senryu form. Its amazing how much is captured in such few words. You've captured my aging process. Time does add weight to so many dimensions, our spirit, mind, emotions, soul, "midsection". LOL. Thanks

    Hi Meg, Thanks for the comment. Funny, but last week I was thinking about some of the poets that seemed to have disappeared from the site and had wondered how your book signing went. This week I heard from Cile Beer on facebook and then saw you had stopped in at poetry soup. It was really nice to hear from you again. Vince

    Just Cool Margaret!!! Just the way it goes with the old earthly house. Shall we restore the old window panes, apply a little paint to it's face? Oh, I hear the new house will be constructed of pure substance. The everlasting material that shall never grow old. Smile, Agape, Moses

    Youth has no idea what age brings. This poem reminds me that Bengay gets used more each winter! Well written.

    Beautiful and lovely in words although painful in realization. You have brilliantly portrayed old age that too in few words. A gem of a Poem. Thanks. Best wishes and love Ravindra
