Faded
Memories are minds
with their own place and time
but as you get older
they become a faded line....

It’s not
That she’s
Getting worse
It’s just she’s depending
On you more and more
So learn to love it Mr.

Autumn VII
gravel-strewn steps
confront ageing legs -
path to secret
love-nest blocked -
let's just cuddle here...

Morning; I awake
with stiffness in my
lank legs.
Yesterdays long run
has taken its toll
on my
ungrateful, ageing
body....

Staring at frayed picture of yesteryear
An old man lives with strangers
His caring son and wife

Derelict now cold Mossed stones in sporadic spill Ageing arms out spread They, competing for the light Sadly, both succumb to time .

Mick Jagger
Mick Jagger

Mick Jagger has two rubber lips,
His body is made of elastic,
Swivel and swerve those ageing hips,
Replaced from recycled plastic.

age
75 he sits in the park
He feeds the birds
says hello to passers bye
But no one stops to look him in the eye
With ageing bones and a broken dialog, he’ll
Be back tomorrow sitting in the park

Premium Member Once Forgotten
Invercargill New Zealand 1905

still life now ageing
suspended on a brick wall
no names of value...
polished up the frame glitters
soon in meltdown for its gold.

My Hat
Orange, black, and white
Keep it pulled down tight.

Sits on my head with pride
Taking care of my uncombed hair
Ageing with daily wear
Threaded with the letters OSU
Eskimo Joe wears one too.

Afraid of Death
He hides under a table,
afraid of meeting ageing,
illness, war, black magic……

He clings to the comfort
of his solitudeness;
“death might be near”,
he whispers with a shiver
in his heart.

Poem for my daughter
Oh Lena, you set my heart on fire,
When I see you think of you,
What eternal power you hide,
What other men will feel I cannot inside,
Fire in my heart this winter, 
To warm an ageing poet,
Whilst the snow falls....

Ageing
I bid farewell to
the brash carnival of youth
and await the peace                     
that follows on from mellow 
age for all who earn that gift.

Wise old men
Wise Old Men

Two old drinking buddies,
Reflected upon their past,
Till one of them asked,
Why's it taken so long,
For us to realise,
We don't need alcohol,
To have such a blast!

Ageing
It is now the end of your life
Your life was filled with wonder and happiness
Your only wish is that it did not have to end
It is a peculiar thing aging
You start with almost no knowledge 
You leave with the knowledge that you can never understand everything.

stages of life
Stages of Life. 

Egg and bacon
Beans and deep fried bread
Breakfast 
Beans on toast
The bacon disappears first
Then the slices of
Fried bread and toast
No more beans
One slice of bread no butter
Sugar- free marmalade
Caffeine free coffee  
No more said about ageing
