Miz Quickly’s Coup d’œil Owl

Coup d’œil

there’s silver in my hair,
the real me melted away
in a coup d’œil

and just like that,
another day went badly.

my youth astray, away
with a wink and a grin
until it was all too late.

  1. Hi Misk!

    Very lovely, in all of its brevity.


  2. For all of us gone and going the way of silver and white – I’ve earn ’em all. Not dying a single one 😉


    1. Funny thing, I had a dream a few nights ago that I coloured my hair dark brown, and everyone was going Ohoooo and Aaaah, and when I woke up, I was the same old grey and washed out person I’ve been for the past decade. LOL!

      1. Not washed out at all!!! A creative mind is as colorful as the artistry that flows – and the pictures that your words create!
