Aging   Leave a comment


Above:  The Author’s Chin on December 30, 2012

My chin is sprouting white hairs and

their friends are growing from my temples.

Yes, I am aging;

I recover more slowly from aches and pains and

experiences pile upon each other,

forming a proverbial tower

of knowledge and awareness

of how little (relatively) I know

as I become more conscious

of one thing then another,

affirmed or proven wrong.

I am growing more humble with age;

sophomoric notions of omniscience

ring hollow; putting on airs

is a waste of time.

Such knowledge is a great gain.
