The Sound of Aging

Is a new beginning

When the days grow quieter
and the sound of silence
becomes the norm
it can usher in
a companion of sorrow
who feels the memories
and hears the giggles
inside of blanket forts.

Poetry is my first love. Inspired by intuition & my chunky ginger cat. My favorite place is by the sea, sipping espressos and daydreaming.
