Joys Of Aging

A complement to Watching The Signs Of Aging

 

After the complaining

And the moaning groaning,

Crying, wailing

Compensating elements

Make up for the travail.

 

Appetite for [lots of] food and such

Is still alive, though wanting not

Nor needing,

Feeding much of much,

Replaced by something that arrives

Quite late:

Discipline that liberates

A weary palate, loss of taste

One has no explanation for.

 

Already written, prized surprisingly:

Loss of lust!

Lust condensed to love and empathy.

So much better, I assure you.

Balanced and secure,

Full of health and warmth.

 

Remind me reader

What you’re free from.

I would love to hear from

Any one

Of you.
