December

Wise old man, all wizened and white,

Walks in watching through dimmed sight.

A staff in hand and golden bell,

For when time’s ripe to resound the knell.

His eyes hold flashes of times gone by,

Good ones, mad ones, laughs and sighs

A mirror are they, to foresee,

What times to come, could (should) be.

A toothless smile on his dear face,

Shall begin to fade as moments race.

Couldn’t hold him back, if you tried,

So everyone danced when he finally died.

When thoughts began to rhyme,
And lines found a heartbeat,
I transformed from a dentist to a poet.

The experience of wrinkles !
