The Ageless Will

There’s a thread that binds all of us together; pull one end of the thread, the strain is felt all down the line.

Rosamond Marshall

Here I am
Drawing lines
Then, through them
I cross lines

The heavy
Weightlessness of care
You’re not there
And that
Is more than I can bare

When a loved one
walks out the door
Demand closure
You’re paying
the power bill alone now

On this Day in 1969:  "Leaving on a Jet Plane" single sung by Peter, Paul and Mary, written by John Denver hits #1 on US Billboard's Hot Top 100.

A threat is a kind of promise

I’ve waited long enough
Take out
These pins and needles

The secret
To staying young
Is lying about your age

80% of children lie about their age on social media
44% of older workers lie about their age on job applications
20% of people lie about their age on dating sites

Life is a prank on the living

Pre destination
We should stop
for a pee break

The leaf
Knows nothing of death
As it drifts free
To rest

  1. Was it really all those years ago that song written by John Denver was released!? I was only twelve years old then (and I don’t lie about my age anymore, either). Life is too short for lies. I loved John Denver’s music back in the day. I had all his albums, which I sold to someone not that long ago. I don’t have a record player anymore, so there seemed no point in keeping them all. I sold a lot of other records along with those, too. Got £20 for the lot! Not bad – they were only gathering dust.
