Generations

freshness

being challenged

by collective wisdom

border line of existence

battles

 

life

unlined by

threads of experience

weaves rawness in embroidered

perseverance

 

mature

mind regrets

its gutsy thoughtlessness

belie self-imposed suffering

stillness

 

time

watches amused

on the sideline

recurring stories of conflict

sangfroid

 

contact

poking embers

unfolding fresh meaning

generating respect, all battles

ending

 

freshness

unlined by

its gutsy thoughtlessness

recurring stories of conflict

ending
