The Aging Ingenue
I’ve had this dream before
It is my favorite one
Your head nestled between
the eroding hills of my breasts,
warm and wet
leaving little droplets on my skin
your once golden hair
catching the afternoon light
disguising and muting
the effect of time on my body
like a rose colored gel in a stage light.
Like anyone who lives long enough, I have experienced great loss and survived. I am convinced that my survival depends on my own participation in creating the reality I am living in, and I am determined to be a thoughtful and active participant/creator. These writings are my way of documenting that creation. As the song goes, "I will survive!" I chose the title Staying Vertical
because I find that surviving isn't just staying on my feet physically. Keeping my thoughts and emotions on the vertical plane keeps me alive and moving forward. Thanks for joining me!
