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.

Courage by LuRain Penny

“There are many forms of Resistance.

Love in the face of hate is the most courageous.

Be the Better World.”
