I am old. I am handsome! Age has a way of tampering the soul and wrinkling the skin . . . but my capacity to love has grown. I can blame time for my aging but I have no excuse to forgive and love! Nicely done!

Great haiku but too much trouble to explain and rationalize.

The truth and the lie are the "Excuse". The explanation is the "Blame". The mirror reflects what you say, back to you. So blame is over excuse...think deeper. Thank you for your comment.
