problems of being an ageing poet

TODAY I AM AWARE

Today
I am aware of bones.

As a rule they do their job
do not intrude.

Today
on this uncomfortable seat
the pelvic frame,
long spans from hip to knee
demand acknowledgement.
I cross, uncross
seeking ease
find only elemental truth

This once too-solid flesh does melt
or whittled by the years
it slips away
till you begin to feel
the scaffolding beneath the skin
and so today
I am aware of bones.

the older we get the closer we recognize our skeletal being yet but must not forget we are surrounded by a youthful and vigorous soul ...

excellent poetry ...

An excellent introspection.

"the scaffolding beneath the skin" is a particularly interesting image.
