This Aging Thing

“In-Form Poet Wednesday” offered a variation on the Oddquain.  A Mirror Oddquain distributes the syllables as 1, 3, 5, 7, 1, 1, 7, 5, 3, 1 in ten lines.

THIS AGING THING

This Aging Thing

Age
comes creeping
in every joint,
adding new wrinkles each day
and
yet,
facing the alternative,
better to grow old
than not and
die.
