Senior Citizen Souls Sail Forevermore


Ole spirit, let us spiral back in time machine memories

To rejuvenate our youth, upon being set free to wander.

Let us spring alive, to play with our heartstring desires,

When live brings animated smiles from deep inside,

By creating wings, with fairy tale flight inside imagination.


Let’s fly, riding the wind, being over fifty pounds lighter,

While aged wrinkles fade in instant vanishing creams.

Vanquish those skeletal aches feeling creaking bones,

Restore a rhythm of an alpha prime persona personality

Reclaiming Peter Pan - dancing alight day dreams.


Remember those childhood places in kid’s imaginations,

Creating children role models in Prince and Princess’s.

Howdy Doody, Bozo the Crown, being that Mouseketeer,

Exploring days as Day Crockett, flying Sky King adventures,   

Doing things that makes a heart skip alive, in past’s bliss.


Skipping stones reflections ripple back record recollections,

A 45 vinyl page of poetry that creates childhood song images.

That quill thrill verse taking us back smiling over 50 years,

When we want to keep turning back pages among tear mists

Those falling tears of a fountain of youth’s Flash Gordon travels.

That special space -

Where -

Senior citizen souls sail forevermore.

You are setting a positive tone here. While I love to reminisce and tell stories of the past, I'm looking forward.
