Once upon a time I was a goddess.
My hair was long and flowing
My smile was as inviting
as my eyes were unnerving.
And my body was a promise of pleasure.
My head was held high.
I felt strong and confident,
poetry flowed like water.
But time and circumstance
have taken their toll.
My goddess has evaporated
into the ether.
My crone is coming to take her place.
I can see her in my creasing face
and slowly graying hair.
Side glances in window glass
reflect changes in pounds and posture.
There is no denying the frump.
There is also no acknowledging
of wisdom gleaned.
Iíve not earned the right of sage.
My purpose has changed
into something less dazzling
but perhaps more important.
Because love is all I need do
to be a grandma.

Your life then, like a mathematical equation, has come to the correct solution...the sum of which is:

A+ Grandma!

Wish the little sweeties lived closer and visited more often. I'm getting excited for the one due in May.   ~L
