Good monring, RG: I finally found a little time to review this poem. My lap top is acting up so I will return to it in about an hour.
As for this poem. I love the way you present the questions that really answer themselves or are used as proof or in comparison to what gets older or what it is like. ( especially the first stanza)
Is a rose less a rose if mature be--
or the lawn less green, after rain has been?
She is said, abalone orange-- the cherry in red.
So why imbue, or stray, to colours grey?
Yes, youth may fade...like the ending of a song,
but, is a kiss, too, lost; its purpose gone?
...as if would say;
to yesterday belong.
-------<@ (what a beginning and the strength continues on throughout this poem till the end - It ends with the one word that titles it - "older."
What a brilliant and powerful way to end a poem. I really enjoyed it all.
I did learn so much from you in the short time that we were in communication. I especially learned to take my time with my poetry, never rush it. When each poem is perfect I will know it by my total satisfaction with it. I thank you so much for this and I will reach out to you as time goes on. I love your updated profile and photo, very impressive.
