361 – Thoughts over a cup of tea

A little pain,
A nagging cough.

This is not how it used to be.

Was it always so cold,
This time of the year?

Did the letters on these labels
Suddenly get smaller?

Am I ready to start asking
“Do I dare eat a peach?”


At least…

Not yet.

Life must be enjoyed
Right here and now
Before it sours.

No time to waste.

Unlike good wines,
Bodies and minds do not age well.
