Values
by Nicholas Haire

When does the value of life end and the dread of death start.
Age can’t qualify for your expiration nor the soul to break even
But as days close in, most would like to have a hold of a strong heart.
We value these days as the illusion of time follow through four seasons.
What waits upon you should never be the weight on your shoulders.
But rather it should be the weight dragging you closer and closer
What drags you may be known as indescribable, but some find it bolder
Bolder but also beautiful as what drags you is essentially the past itself.
Dread of ending is only as scary as what life has offered you at the beginning.

Ode To Age
by Pablo Neruda

I don't believe in age.
All old people
carry
in their eyes,
a child,
and children,
at times
observe us with the
eyes of wise ancients.
Shall we measure

Stop To Start
by Ololade Raji

For a start, please stop to start
There are things you are not even aware of
While time is hemming away at your parents
You forgot terrible things come in threes?

As time furtively alters the rhythm of your life
Yet you naïvely joke at the greying of others
Little did you know that not even yours is spared
In the painful existence of these unknown days

Aged Like Wine
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Years go by like a purple blur of time,
As when the ripest grapes are turned,
Into the most luscious and aged wine!
Then memory itself often comes calling,
In sweltering sunshine and in the rain,
Like roaming bluebirds' memories of home,
Or the sweet memories of the honeybee!
Seasons come and go so colorfully vivid,
Obeying a golden rule of sunshine cycles.
Hectic time goes by quickly like rainbows,

Youth and Age
by Arthur Guiterman

Bersi, the champion, famed in his day,
Agèd and bedridden, drowsily lay.
Halldor, the baby, the grandfather's pride,
Cooed in his cradle the pallet beside.
Recklessly rocking, the cradle fell o'er;
Halldor, the baby, was cast on the floor!
Strengthless to succor his torment and joy,
Bersi, the champion, sang to the boy:
'Lorn, by the fireside helpless we lie,
Grandchild and grandfather, Halldor and I.

Peacock (pls give feedback for improvement)
by axox axox

One must understand the peacock
Graceful and elegant
Powerful enough to give a shock
You must understand what your soul wants
Your jade isn’t enough
Only in experiences, you’ll find luck
One must be tough
Then realization might struck
May Eos come your way
Those blessed with the third eye can see

It Seems Like Ages
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

In happier days not so long ago,
It was the prettiest peach on the tree;
But the sun has gone and everyone's left,
Now only traces of the memory.

It was so plump, red orange and gold,
And reveled in its heyday of the sun,
But now sits here alone shriveled and dry,
On a pantry shelf, unseen by anyone.
