Poetry Wednesday 75

Everybody is “Masked” literally this time of year and some are figuratively as well

“Masked”

Want to remain masked

Avoid revealing when asked

Hidden self, held fast

Poetry Wednesday #37

Today’s edition of Poetry Wednesday is titled “Chilling” and laments the effects of winter as we age.

“Chilling”

I am getting old

Feel the limbs suff’ring the cold

Youth’s bell, now has tolled.
