fifty

fine lines appear upon her face
intricate in their design
from reflection's view she sees
time has captured her
youth has faded away...

    Sandra, for all women who start to feel this, some before fifty and some just after, I think it captures so much the essence of that decade in our lives. Congrats on your number one win,
