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
Searching
Like my grandson feeling
For his mustache beginning to grow—

Different perspectives on hair
Same excitement…generations apart

~

Conquering life’s heights
Septuagenarian
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!
