Eldest

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

“Just how old are you?”
Although youth has long died,
“As young as the moment,”
My body replied.
“If I want to play out
In the sun, or climb trees,
Run laughing through dewdrops,

I have a few wrinkles,
My hair’s going grey…
Inside I’m a child
And I still need to play.”

“Just how old are you then?”
My body asked mind,
“As old as conception,

    So much about youth…leaves me cold. Creams and cosmetic surgery. This dialogue is something else. Dialogue itself is the best anti-ageing device…it’s slipping into inner monologue we need to be wary of. Thank you for this reminder.
