Standing the Test of Time: Aging Organically

Standing the test of time

 

 

Head burrows in hand
Elbows sink in shallow sand,
Sagging skin flails into eternity,
Chewed-up guts of a lifetime spill out
Keeping time with the cosmic rhythm
Tick-Tock. Tick-Tock. Tick-Tock.

And in spite of it all
We endure.
We thrive.
