Living Pains

A New View

.

A new twitch was discovered

at waking. Old twitches

are receding like an inherited

hairline. Bask in the inevitability

that new spasms are about to be

created.

.

Sixty nine years about

to be seventy causes the mind

to reel, the heart to look

up, the lungs to wonder. How

am I possible when so many did

not survive to here?

Wow---the wisdom in this poem

Wow---the wisdom in this poem is profound, and the interior drama is so poignantly described without being maudlin.  This is one of the most brilliant poems on its subject that I have read for a long time.

"brilliant"?

Just a reflection on a theme. Chronos is watching and this is what was gleaned to arrive in verse at the 4th quarter of my life is all. Starward, from you this commen means a great deal as I respect your profound work and philosophy. You rock! - Lady A
