Evidence Of

Evidence of...

I look at my wrinkles, sags,
furrow in brow
budding jowl
And  wonder
“Where did they come from?”

Then I remember:
I have lived!

I have loved
For three decades
Nearly four

Grown  babies
In my womb
Fed them,  held them
Let them soar

Cities, Countries
Canyons, Mountains
Skyways, Shore

I’ve touched
Grand and grimy
Caressed new life
Felt hands slip from mine
To pass beyond this veil, to more

Joys and sorrows
Smiles, tears, frowns
Created wrinkles, sags,
furrowed brow, jowl

I AM art
I’m fine sculpture
Work of passion
Labor of Love

I have lived!
Fully embraced
I AM evidence of
