Magnolia bloom –

As old as the dinosaurs ~

Makes me feel younger.

Watch the Top Forty-

Don’t know any of the songs ~

Nor do I want to.

Increasingly sore-

Joints, fingers, ankles, knees, back ~

Must do more yoga.

Trying news lenses –

Concentric varifocals ~

Brain fills in the gaps.

Find an old painting –

Did I do that? Old poems ~

Who was it wrote those?

An older couple –
Her arm around him, stroking ~
The last of his hair.

Booking a cheap flight –
Filling same details again ~
Birth year further down.

A sudden surprise –
The appearance of my hands ~
Aged and beaten.


Where did you come from?
Practically overnight ~
Old man eyebrow hair.
