A Good Day


Grooves sink deeper
Lines more firmly etched
Smooth cedes to creased
Spots dot the clear

Time gleefully dips
its brush in years
relentlessly dabs
age on the face

Yet the mirror paints
a pleasant picture

A smile still lives in eyes
Lips still tilt upwards
Life still has its moments
Maybe today is a good day
