Sunday Scribblings Aging "Awakening with purpose and Joy"

"Awakening with Purpose and Joy"
Acrylic done on canvas


I missed Sunday Scribblings on Aging, so here's a short poem for that prompt!


My Age


I deflect age

By awakening

With joy

And purpose

Some days

Small

None the less

Relevant

Stripped

Of vanity

Swathed

In humility

Age

Wisdom

Fortitude

And gratitude

Awaken

My bliss

Aloha Sherri,
I love that with age comes wisdom, the wisdom to know what to do and the wisdom to sometimes not do it..lol
It's being 50 and only half way through life fun?
peace, bliss and happy days, Kai

Ah! Do you have any idea how good it is to be back and able to read you again? I don't think life is supposed to be this busy when you get older, but maybe it is because I'm trying to do the same amount as when I was younger and keep adding on.

It is just so nice to stop by and read a neat poem.
