This is a beautiful poem!
Mmm... I love your approach to aging in this piece. I can definitely relate! Can we turn around and run the other way?
I like this. Just so you know, I've been reading, in fact fell asleep over E last night getting caught up.
What an original image - really like it!
Thanks! I've been mostly surprised at what is coming up in these prompts. For example, way back in September when I made the list I thought I'd be writing about Zambia for "Far."
Just think how knowledgeable she'll be when you finally catch up with her. :)
I love this one. And it is so timely. Just this morning I looked into the mirror and saw a glimpse of my own aged lady. Thank goodness I quickly moved before she could grab my hand.
Wow! Great job Dana..
Enjoyed this one.x
Loved this and knowing that she's getting closer makes us want to live each day well... but... but...but... that old lady is getting a little too close for comfort lately. :)
The far off woman, what a beautiful image. It reminds me of how I used to think about my daughter's teenage years. I remember when she was a baby, and I was a teenager and I thought... one day this infant will be 16. Now that she's almost 13, that one day doesn't seem like such a leap any more.
What a terrific piece of work!
Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
