as the mirror meets
her gaze, she sees them, clearly –
wisdom or old age?
(Of course, “she” is used in general terms,
as this can be for men, too.
Just some simple thoughts on aging,
our reactions and what we’ll do about it,
Me? I won’t do anything; no desire,
but I will pray (really hard) to age gracefully.

really like this!! well done!
I see new lines all the time in the mirror. Washing the mirror doesn’t help either. 😉
Keep those lines and any new ones you get, Lauren. They each tell a story. 🙂
Have a lovely weekend, my friend!
I’ve tried washing the mirror, too…maybe we’re using the wrong product! 🙂 Yes, they each do tell a story, thanks, Deb, and you do the same! Have a lovely day! Many hugs! xoxo
laugh lines/wrinkles are simply street maps to the heart and I cannot imagine you aging any more beautifully or gracefully, inside and out. Thanks for expressing your heart Lauren.
Aww…thanks so much, Purple! I appreciate your very kind words that have added more sunshine to my day! Many hugs!
I really love this Lauren! Just sweet and lovely. And I hope todo it gracefully too! ❤ HBL XX
Thanks, Chris, and you are aging gracefully already! ♥ HBL 🙂
To age gracefully is fine, Lauren, there is wisdom in this.
That’s what I’m praying for, Cynthia, grace and wisdom! 🙂 Thanks for gracing me with your beautiful company! xx
Sweet poem, Lauren. My wrinkles haven’t bothered me yet, but I’m sure the day is coming…
Thanks, Lori, and I suppose we have no choice, as the clock only moves forward! 🙂
I see no wrinkles on her face, only the lines of our lives together — others might read those lines but will never share the secrets hidden within — it is hers and mine — for eternity.
Aww..beautiful words of eternal love, Eric! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Yep–Grace is the answer to all of those puzzles that confound our mortal skills!
May we all be blessed with Grace! 🙂
Yes my friend. “Age gracefully”. hugs. Renee 🙂
We can only hope, right? 🙂 Hugs back! 🙂 xx

I agree and thanks so much for your comment and for your visit! 🙂
Excellent verse Lauren – full of wisdom! I think about his often too… trying hard to embrace the concept of grace and aging – wisdom lines – yes!! x RL
