wrinkles in time, a poem

              Wrinkles in Time

Once her skin was smooth and soft

inviting a lover’s touch…

Now her arms recall the delight of it all

as the feeling  of warm fingers still lingers

erasing the wrinkles in time.

    A tender, wistful poem! Beautiful.

    Tender and wistful? Yeah, I guess. But as I was reading I was thinking, yep, that’s exactly how it is. That’s reality. Well done. I can SO relate!

        the picture really has nothing to do with the poem, its the header image of the blog. The assignment for the poem was “skin” and the style prose-poetry and internal rhyme . I do enjoy writing poetry.

    This is touching. I’d say, excuse the pun except that actual touching is important, here. Recalling delight removes time’s wrinkles. Words wonderful for life, unlike the lessons that subliminally affect us. Thanks for your wisdom!

      how kind of you to say so … I love that you got what I was trying to say, thanks for elaborating.

    • Oct 8 2015
