 Waking To Aging: a Fold poem

Some mornings when bones relate age to skin,

Poise just wants to relax and bend forward;

Reality and surreal veils become thin,

Body pains storing aging records;

Sky of morning relate age to skin,

With its grey clumps of sunless clouds;

Some games you lose and some you win,

That's the way of setting and risings sun;

A heartshaped cloud! a sure win,

Can seep through aches of rising to, 

Another day when bones relate age to skin.
