Perhaps because I can relate more than I would like, this is an instant favourite. Well done!
I love your words, the cailleach is there among them.
Elan, a powerful piece with lovely imagery and such a great message. Thank you. Happy writing, Melissa

It is exquisite. The face is simply angelic. Gorgeous nose.
The photo is from a graveyard here in Portland. Thanks
Wonderful images of aging. A friend and I were talking this morning about how much fun we are having at this surprisingly good time of life.
Your words are lovely and bittersweet, much like the aging process.
I remember a time, not too long ago, when I went to lunch with a friend, a lady 30 years my junior. For the first time, I became aware that I wasn’t the one men noticed anymore. But that was okay; I’d had my time in the sun. 🙂 To everything there is a season . . .

I really love the way you make words sound so musical. And it’s so easy to get the imagery here, especially with the wonderful photo. Loved it!
Absolutely stunning and haunting in equal measure. I really enjoyed reading this collection of beautiful words. And the picture – the face covered in moss is breathtaking. Did you take the shot? Have a lovely weekend.
so good, vivid imagery too

So well said, what this old tree would say and how.
Beautiful, graceful poetry of aging.
“dusty divining rod” is good.
The affects of time and the aging process captured beautifully, almost as if nature had written it herself! Bravo! 🙂
I love this one! I felt it and that is always wonderful! Thank you for sharing!
I enjoyed the whole poem, but I loved the line “My voice is tuned to the key of time.”
Beautiful, true, and it was also, a joy to read this and reminisce. Something even old boomers like to do.:0)
Bitter sweet, but tasty. The photo will haunt me for a very long time, as will the layers of words.
Utterly beautiful writing. Excellent 🙂
This is a brilliant bit of writing!
This is a fantastic piece! Has a melody to it…
old seasons place aches inside….I relate to that oh so well! 😉
The process of ageing is so beautifully penned. Lovely.
