Daydream drama

unknown legends

dwell in enchanting

chapters embrace as

whispered applause

echo yesteryears

glory in intoxicating

masquerades neath

visions of I was beautiful

then radiance lack lustered

by gloaming of ageism

moments once defined

as wondrous acclaims

now a faded scrawl on blank

dogeared pages.

    by gloaming of ageism

    This entire poem rings so true, Eugi.

    By the way, when I first looked at it (before reading it) the way it was spaced our and long down the screen made me think, “surely this is more than 44 words!”

    And even after I’d read it, I still felt like I’d read something much longer than merely 44 words.

    1. Thank you, David! After your comment, I had to check the word count in my processor and found I was a couple of words short of the 44! I have since corrected it. I’m still making my rounds trying to read what everyone else wrote! 😊

  2. How time affects us, the loss of beauty and place as we were, and yet …. nothing is lost, and we are, well, that’s where it spoke to me, wonderful read Eugenia.

  3. “chapters embrace as whispered applause echo yesteryears,”… this is exquisitely drawn! Life is all about embracing the present moment 🙂

  4. Eugenia, your lovely poem has the ring of authenticity. ❤ I have experienced many facets of aging. If I had to generalize, I would say that aging does not enhance us physically, but it has its own richness and joy. I’d say that’s a fair exchange, as long as we retain our cognitive function, anyway! All the best! 🙂
