Age, a rocky tor
begs attitudinal shift
more wonder
than fortitude

Cyclical, actually
wisdom allotting
childish valour
a dash of mellow.

(For RDP’s prompt: mellow. Image my own.)

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.

  1. Your post didn’t link up to RDP. I love the image. I agree there is some wisdom in allowing our childish side to mellow us out in our old age! What do they say…take a chill pill! lol

  2. The image is beautiful. I don’t know the media, but the colors and the shapes and lines of things are both thoughtful and delightful. In terms of text, urging the cycle of life to include some mellow for the “childish valour” sounds balanced. Does this mean that maturity could benefit from wisdom letting in some childishness? I hope so.
