i hope you like it and take what you will from it :)

crows feet

<>



my age is creased across my brow
crushed me into a frown just now
             and i
can't hide my feelings
as i deal with my approaching 50's

i grimace not for growing older
rather, in protest of those reporting my demise

crows haven't come to claim me
they have just walked around my eyes

The secret is to lie real still And when the crows light - do the kill. Upon ensuring their demise, Bake yourself some birdie pies... A great write, my friend. Humorous, but thoughtful at the same time.

You know this is so good :) Feels light and it is amazing to me how VOLUMES were conveyed in the last 4 sentences....like someone else said, it's like the Bruce Lee strike...quick yet powerful... truly enjoyed this :)

Dang them crows. I really like this. Well done. Like Bruce Lee's famous strike, you've packed a lot of wollop into a small punch.

No problem your work is inspiration in itself. I would buy your book in a heartbeat.

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
