Last Rites by LuRain Penny

When I’m too old to carry on

Can’t light a pipe or write a song

Don’t dump me in a elder home

Lest I die out all alone

Prop this body against a tree

Cover with leaves then sing to me

Drink and dance till no eye dry

While I rise to fly fly fly

Ode to Age by LuRain Penny

I am not pristine. I am weathered.

My flesh bears the mark of all my indulgences and injuries.

Though it was I who stumbled, my body fell.

 

I love my carriage now.

It has borne me along all these years.

I know it, recognize it as mine, am grateful for its service.

 

A home for my soul, twisted no longer.

Came through the dark night, my starling, to shine.

Fiery Estuary

This is one Red Sky at night that will not delight Sailors.

Wildfires around the West have destroyed thousands of Trees and Forest Animals.

There is no telling the future outcome.

Erosion and loss of natural habitat will impact the environment for decades to come.

Miles away from the burning, cloud cover made the night visible with an eerie half light that stunned nocturnal creatures to silence.

The Moon was blood red.

A wound on the face of sky.
