Vintage Words


My scars were earned

my wrinkles were sun etched

and are now permanent.


My gray hair is like rust,

no amount of scraping

will restore the shine,

the boldness of blackness,

or the ability to be



I ignore the weeds

growing around my sore

ankles. I type slower

to avoid the need

for an oil change.


My joints rattle

when I dance

and yes indeed,

I still dance.

Not all of mine ive earned

Not all of mine ive earned but there are some I am extremely proud of. I laughed at the hair and rust/polish reference;  odd but very apt! Hugss
