Growing Beautifully Old

Because that is love,

when my beaten, wrinkled skin is still caressed by you, 

and your gray smoky hair is my loving obsession. 

When we are lovers, may we dance under the full harvest moon,

and pick pumpkins

at old Wellwood Orchards.

    Take my hand, 

    And let your other hold on to a kite that is a

    Shooting Star.


    The harvest moon will rise above us,

    as we fly,
