examining yet
another birthday is looking
into only the

memory of the wrinkles
across great-grandmother’s hands

we’ve always wrinkled

yesterday’s wrinkles

yesterday’s wrinkles
are today’s chores –
we share the load
to smooth out
the edges
twice as fast

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: wrinkles

there are moments

there are moments
while standing
in the shower –
just before
waking
a second
or a third time –
when you recall
those afternoons
when we could
build a pool
around our bodies sitting
in the bathtub,
elbows deep
in toys, splashing
out summer’s
swelter, laughing
away the fleeting
caress
of wrinkles
