Smorgasbord Poetry – Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge – Double Reversed #Nonet – Ageism by Sally Cronin

This week for Colleen Chesebro’s #Tanka Tuesday Challenge 221 it is synonyms only – for Search and Lost I have written a double reverse nonet on age related matters! I have chosen the synonyms Explore and Adrift.

Mind
body
and spirit
strive not to lose
the urge to explore
outside the barriers
created by young ageists
who dictate terms of existence
for those who have reached a certain age
How
quickly
they forget
who created
the technology
medical advances
and freedoms they now enjoy
are they scared that once set adrift
we might just show them a thing or two?
