A Parchment Life

My skin is turning parchment.
The years of my aging now yielding to familial DNA,
to youthful days running bare in the sun.
There is a coming to grips with
this process of life and living,
a reality check of sorts.
All of this is good,
this emerging gray and wrinkling me.
All of it is God’s goodness
a reflection
of lives well-lived in the sun
in the pleasures of this good earth.


  1. I love it.."as the evidence of our aging reveals a story..." blessed we are that it is so..the way you have expressed this is so good!

  2. I can relate.
    Life in the Son,
    and the Son in me,
    reconciled to our Father,
    what Life -- is meant to Be.
