Smorgasbord Poetry – #Etheree – Age Defying by Sally Cronin


For the next few weeks Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge  is on hiatus as Colleen sells up and moves home which is very exciting.. She has asked that her regular participants continue with their weekly poem and I shall do just that. It is poet’s choice, so this week I have decided on a Etheree…..with a little humour….

Age Defying

The blessing of age is fading eyesight
that offers the delusion of youth
and denial of years passing
as you look in the mirror
where you apply a mask
from a magician
who promises
to hold back
demon
time

I hope you will keep moving your syllables around while Colleen is house hunting and drop me a link and happy to share…Sally.
