Senescence – Growing Old With Charm

The gray hair was
making an unceremonious appearance
and the occasional wrinkle
smeared on her face
whenever she smiled

The thoughts were brightened
anger was much in her control
life was deprived of drama
and quip was more sensible
for she was gradually stepping
toward her older being
sure she was growing wise
because of senescence
