Experience


Through aged eyes we see
life and love, both differently.
In youth we defend our precious own;
in age we seek a comfort zone.
With wisdom we see through eyes in-kind;
respect then follows close behind.

  1. I like that.

    Maybe if I caved and got the glasses I desperately need, I'd "see" with more wisdom. (Being tongue in cheek here.)

    Peace.

  3. Wise thinking from a 'wise woman,' Ms. Mac. I am about ready for glasses again. Probably hearing aids too. After reading your poem perhaps I should hurry. Oh yes, I am still smiling for your comment. Thank you. I did have more in mind than 'birds' but I wasn't thinking politicians. That works good.

  10. Such a wise observation. Experience comes from living a while and our vision on things changes with experience. So well said.

  12. A beautiful poem, Annie, and wise words indeed! I am often amazed at how much my perspective on love and life in general has changed over the past sixty years. I hardly know the girl I was back then, I am very happy with the one I have become. It was well worth all the years of struggle in between. Thank you for a very special contribution to Two Shoes Tuesday! <3
