The old man stumbles,
the young man swaggers with assurance;
stars of grace and suns of perfect
promise point to journeys yet uncharted
on their pathways to fulfillment.
The old man dreams of childhood,
cherished memories and golden opportunities.
The young man yearns for sexual expression.
Companions, self-possessed, growing
in respect for their astonishments and fears;
the old man a philosopher,
a master of life's unpredictabilities,
the young man just a neophyte,
the world at his behest.
Together, yet alone, storied travellers
with different versions of the universe.
