OBSERVING THE ELERLY AND THE OLD. THE PULL OF NATURE.

AND IS IT A CONDITION OR ELEMENT OF TIME? 

 

Pain for the elderly.

 

Elder pain, pain, pain. 

Pain that remains,

pain that will never dissolve,

Elder’s pain.

 

 

Old.

 

Growing old.  And old is?  It is a condition of life, it is said.

No it is not.  It is a condition of ensuing death.

 

 

Looking ahead.

 

Can an old person,

in pain,

of wisdom of ensuing death

be joyous in that future reality?

 

 

And the future.

 

Depressing?  Not enduringly joyous.

What is the meaning of the future

as it turns on itself

in its diminishing nature?

 

Time makes wineOld wine.

 

And who are the elderly?

You and the babe now at birth,

Shall that become.

The elderly, made up of the elements of time.

 

 

Art is its own reality.

 

And the elderly artist in a world real only in his art. 

And only in art of old age is the future reality. 

Reality, is only the art of life. 

Art of living is also art of old age and art of discontinuing.

 

 

Death, the black hole of life.

 

The time between now,

 and then,

 is it real,

or merely a fading

grey hole?
