Silent, Age

Youth flaunts her truth
serious in convictions –
that eternity exists
that words carry worth

Folly naturally succeeds
break down – inevitable
the opportunity to learn –
silent, age considers action.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
