Rehearsing for old age…

The kids are away for a week on holiday with some friends. Gulp.

They will have a lovely time, but it is strange for M and me. We have not spent so much time alone for 14 years.

Today a storm blew along the Clyde and interrupted our industry. A blessing in wind and rain, gifting us with a slow Sunday morning reading, listening to music and snuggling on the sofa.

These days are rare indeed.

And how blessed I am that I get to share mine with M…


Today we rehearsed old age

And it was lovely

.

Our bones went soft

And our muscles ceased their strain

.

There is a storm on the old river

And kind grey light makes

Our faces take on

Graceful lines

And shadows

.

You on the sofa

And me in my chair

.

Today we rehearsed old age

And it was lovely
