The only thing 'good' about old age as depicted in my short couplets is sense of humor. As our bodies shrink, may our senses of humor grow! Thanks for visiting. Poetry hugs ... CayCay

Hi Cay Cay, six wonderful couplets for the contest. Each is excellent in its own write, encompassing its own single thought. I wish i could write these shorter writes. It takes me twenty lines to say hello. I love the content of each. I think my serenity island has become poetry. have a wonderful weekend. Hugs....Mike. XX

Somewhere in your talent, I KNOW the ability to write 'shorties' does exist. I had to search for mine, too. It is comments such as yours that enforce my ability to believe I succeeded. I thank you for that. Poetry hugs ... CayCay

We have to laugh at aging, other reactions are all so gloomy tinted. Memory is a fav of mine to poke fun at, what else can I do when its such an easy target ... Thank you, Tom, for your visit. Poetry hugs ... CayCay
