age – memories and nonsense take 2

babbling about age
joints (a different kind)
that ache in rain
sounds of oohs and aaahs
stiff bones –  (sat too long)
bending with a sock

wrinkles (don’t get me started)
tired arches – heels too high
energy zapped
end of the day (do I have to cook)
tablets – herbs- vitamins
body rattles walking pharmacy

one could ask (no I do ask)
how much to they alleviate
placebos of the mind
thinking of ahead
walking sticks (possibly frames)
be gone with you

for ageing brings memories
smack bang – the hippocampus
of daisy chains
Hendrix – Joplin
laughter sitting cross legged
gunji – beer

music deafening
rattling walls – parents
banging loud on doors
escaping through the
flywire screens –
just a sleep over at my
friends…

riding bareback
flirting with the boys
hikes in forests
watching the sunrise
all night movie marathons
popcorn – hugs in the
backrow

age – best not to think
of what is left – how to
mark our days
think of
who we were
what we did
we may be older
but inside (where we live)
nothing’s really changed

  1. it is good to think that what is inside is still the same…even if our bodies defy us…ha…i have had those joint aches since young due to a loading dock accident …i can def tell you when it is going to rain…there are already things i did as a youngster i would not try now…ha…some interesting memories in there as well…

    • helloooo – sorry to hear about your accident -at least we are still waking up taking in air – I think we are like ants – they know when it rains also 😉 hmm yes did I mention I was a bit of a rebel??- thank you for reading Brian.
