The Gnarled Gait

Smear of wrinkles, tattered hair
A long life mapped on his forehead,
An old man sways over a cane,
Racked with ill health

Haggard expression
Portrait of banality 
Ancient gemstone locked behind old age

Impulses of joy flash in his mind
Remembrances of eloquence,
Afterthoughts of youth and strength,
Of deer skipping across green meadows,
Of snow carpeted on the rooftops,
Of dew trickling beyond the seas,
Of children laughing in the sun
