Dandelion Wisdom ~ Tanka X

Age comes to us all
A burst of vitality
Vibrant as the sun
Fading to transparency
Like ghosts of the stars

  1. Beautiful Tanka, but just one thing…. hey talk about you getting old, I´m ageless I´m a 32 going on a 22. And have stayed on 22 for the rest of my life and plan to stay at that age.

    • My beautiful Nanny, who passed away January at ninety-seven, said the same thing to me not very long before she died. I was joking about my laugh lines and said something like, “I look in the mirror and wonder who the old lady is who stole my face”. She said that she looks in the mirror and sees her twenty-year old self and that most often that’s how she feels. Most days, my soul is twenty, somedays it’s ten, other days two hundred. I cherish every moment though and also plan to stay twenty forever, just like Nan 🙂
