Poem of the Week – 12/5/14

My Magic Body


 Aging, aching, limping, lumpy

My body speaks to me loudy

As I begin the sixth decade of my life

The mirror isn’t my friend

It’s more of an emotionless reminder

That life is constant change

And my body is my body

Regardless of how I feel about it

When I try to walkmy body feels

Heavy, resistant, unforgiving

But in the arms of a lover my body is

Perfect, sexy, powerful

    1. Thanks, Nancy! I’m glad you like it. I used all of my meager photo editing skills to transform that gorgeous photo into a header. I’m glad someone noticed. 🙂

  1. I’ve recently started the fifth decade but this is all so very true. Luckily life is a constant change.

    1. This is so, so true, Joyce. My 40’s were amazing! The best of times and the worst of times. Now, I only look forward. Thank you for reading and leaving a comment. 🙂
