Life's Masks

Mask of Childhood
and Youth —
	A Dreamer I am
	An adventurer I am 
	Telling stories with crayon
	Riding my Pony into the wind
	Bashful I am – smiling at a boy
	Inching toward the responsibilities of womanhood.

Busy Mask of 
Womanhood —
	Loving I am – a man
	Passing dreams to children
	Adventures encouraging children
	Telling stories – now with Paint
	Teaching my children how to ride into the wind
	Moving toward independent womanhood.

Mask of the
 Old —	Saying goodbye I am – To my heart / man / boy
	But a dreamer I am – still
	An adventurer I am – always
	Telling stories with poetry and paint
	Tending my pony as we remember riding into the wind
	Slowly moving toward final goodbyes ....

    Judith, what lovely surprise to hear from you. Want to thank you for that, it means so much that you stopped by. My first poem in years here. Oh, this poem, it does make me cry too. You were always such an amazing and talented poet.Yes, so many changes, losses and perhaps new beginnings. Life is not easy. I am ok, hope you are doing well too. Yes, I miss my old poetry friends very much. You have made me smile. A joy to view your beautiful work and so lovely to chat with you. Sending hugs xo
