Steady Steward : Time

Charismatic Zoe consistently bears tendancy of softening strangers into friends Perhaps resulting from her relocating frequency Her familiarity with 'all sorts' hones empathy Inspires trust, apprehension suspends Fresh town primed to garner aquaintence In the year charming Zoe turns thirty eight Uninhibited, curious, built by self reliance Folks cheerfully offer firm alliance Her attentiveness ensures it remains Zoe values conversation vivid vivacious Exuding nonchalance, ability to laugh at her folly Fabulous new friendships steadily progress Synchronisity cements compadre success Several new girlfriends all in their forties! Shrinking space separates her from next decade Stubborn Zoe pictures dowdy entirely optional Zone of forty hopefully could be allayed Reality shattered, coming years delayed Ignorance imagines aging not applicable She perceives it holds hands with abating energy Admires dignity older friends can achieve Surely high spirits dissolve eventually? Settled staid of middle aged brings lethargy Lustre of gusto a gown youth beseech Witty Zoe's process barely outstanding Timidly turning formidable forty - - - - Truth had evaded fathomed planning Age expectations are pure semantics! Trajectory questions finally sorted Embracing increasing, relaxed stance decided Zoe dresses in fearless effervescent Category defiant, her latitude desirable Zeal's spirit reveals pleasant surprises Takes unashamedly from unfolding present Written for : Time Poem Contest Sponsored by : Chantelle Anne Cooke Originated : 9th June 2020
