Rejuvenation’s something
Every senior lacks.
Jumping jacks and knee bends
Undo their legs and backs.
Vaporub is smeared on
Each throbbing, aching shoulder.
Not a single oldster
Admits he’s getting older.
Testosterone’s not something
It’s easy to restore.
Old men find the lack of it
Nothing but a bore.

Here’s more to say about the joys of aging:


The Ragtag prompt today is rejuvenate.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    LOL! That is so great! I finally figured out that’s what’s lacking at our house at the moment. These two males I live with are so used to me letting my testosteronish (I know, that’s not a word…) side out to keep things in order here that they feel threatened now that I’m sort of out of commission in some ways. They don’t know how to handle it.
