Floating Away

Perennial or annual?

Annual.

Like a chunk of melting ice, we lose a part of ourselves with time (which doesn’t exist, remember)…

The watchman with a microscope sees his underfooting melt and float away, leaving the captain of the fleet more vulnerable.

I lost a part of me today, and will tomorrow also.  The longer I live now, the less there is of me.  Finally the early memories remain, and I am stripped in my naked animal vulnerability. 

Grin and bear it or don’t grin?  Ha ha…

SOFT LANDING

Published September 28, 2019 by Nan Mykel

Sure,  time’s moving faster,

whitewater rafting between

treacherous shoals.

Slow it down, slow it down!

Time’s winged chariot

catches one’s breath. How

to gentle into a peaceful

landing…How best to live until we

drift into the long day’s end?

 

Positive feelings about aging

equal longer life, they say.

How shall we maintain that frame

of mind? For me, it’s Curiosity!

The mysteries will always remain.

Wonder and wondering will fill

my parachute and help it to

gentle me down to a soft landing.
