Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Leftovers, Continued, Again

December 14, 2007

(a Moleskine musing penned after some internet perusing…)

the photos are only four years old
but the contrast is striking
time has been a teacher
and it shows

not fatter or fuller or fallen
not bitter or battered
not tired or tattered
still hopeful, still sharp

idealism tempered by fire
hope stronger than before
wisdom, too
and strength

dreams burning still
some glowing, some flaming,
some waning
burning, but not consuming

faraway friends for the journey
the faces are worn
but the eyes are clear
youth is overrated
