Welcome Silver

— Bonnie L. Molay George

Aging sign of passing years
Several silver strands
Appear to shine
As I part my hair in different ways
In front of a mirror
Like my grandson feeling
For his mustache beginning to grow—

Different perspectives on hair
Same excitement…generations apart


Conquering life’s heights
Steps up—steps in time

One thought on “Welcome Silver

  1. Bonnie, what wonderful poems! I love the tone of the poems–at once acceptance of age and a celebration of it. Seriously, did you hear that collective gasp when you mentioned you are 70? Total disbelief–I’ll need to see your driver’s license, young lady!
