In Her Own Shadow

The old woman I’m becoming
is pestering me.

It’s leaped on me the way
July does.

There’s nothing gradual
about it.

    • Different circumstances, but no, I don’t, Worms, because I have lived my previous life. Time has been generous, giving me more than I ever expected or thought possible. For you, perhaps, time has given you more time. However, time is slowly taking away the sight in my left eye, which makes me more aware, insightful, and more careful. As Mr M says, Life is what it is. I adore that man.
