Twilight’s Reward

Weather-veined life swings west,
sunset years glowing
on time-shaded pastel,
with storms and trials surmounted,
the triumph of age, deserves the reward.

Delight is notched in wrinkles,
every line of the form that once fed babes,
fed family, fed the future.

Smiles curve as feet kick back
and old bodies bask in their twilight.
