The lift of her curse

Such a rash stimulus before
mine eyes,
which has caused, the naïve 
the likes of I

Though each day (it seems)
winks back at me through the
reflective pane;
a jocund feeling over comes
almost becoming ecstatic

It has many of times
the jingle
yes, as in
rhyme and verse,
many passionate words,
from the lift of;

her curse

    Although I'm not ecstatic when looking in the mirror, I am glad for what I still have and you remind me that's how we need to accept ourselves.

    Ah yes - a study in comparisons, or do I misread? I, myself, am capable of passionate words. Alas, at my age, words is about it. The "reflective pane" has spoken. Love, daver

    Dear James, having just passed another birthday, I can relate to the "curse" in the mirror. LOL Your poem about the toll of years on our bodies made me giggle. There are many types of "passion" and I love the way you wove your message in this verse. I have been away the past week. Back home now and hope to catch up on more reading. Love you, Carolyn
