Last of a reflective "growing younger" trilogy needing to be grounded.

Thirty Summers Left

And what is thirty?
Three prints of one's hands in the mud
Just a youthful day at the beach
Forever replanting impressions
Whether tide in
Or tide out

Innocence kept alive

Existence sublime

I like the title. 'Thirty Summers Left,' as in left behind; or thirty summers left, as in remaining. Fits well with the trilogy nomenclature, "growing younger"; the dichotomy of growing older and staying younger. Thirtysomething....very nice middle either way it is served. ~~ Diana

A perfect reflection to the point with room for all your readers to add their own images.

"...Forever replanting impressions.."
ah yes, the nub of it, the cycle
we can't resist and can't afford to...

i like this kernel reflection, Odin,
it hits home true

I love the three prints of one's hand in the mud as a allegory of a life span, and the fact that the prints were made in the mud rather than the sand also is telling. Short poem, full of meaning.

That is a great last act. Loved this.
