aging #3 – Mornings

youth
leap and bound
morning midday
no matter

aging
the leap
and bound still
in your mind

no older person
discloses this
the difference
this distinction

i wallow past
the weak bladder
aching hips
slow gait

knowing 
it will pass
abate
lesson

my mind's eye
running
playing
planning the day
