Old Bird

Yes, I’ve been called old.

It happens

After almost half a century

On the planet.

I figure,

What’s a few decades,

When one is going to live forever?

(Yes, I really believe that.)

Have I been called “tough”?

I hope so,

If people mean resilient.

If they mean, bull-headed and obstinate…

Not so much!

So, in-keeping with the theme

Of this blog.

And in-keeping with the holiday season

That is fast approaching,

I guess you could say

I’m one tough, old bird.

(I wish there were emoticons on WP.)

I hope that reference

Can never be applied to me

As a synonym for being

Dry, outdated and of little value

(Like a less-than-appetizing holiday turkey).


If it means I’m a resilient, wise soarer,


I’m OK with that.

Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding? β€œTo God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his (Job 12:12-13, NIV).
