Grown-up games (Day 645)


Around the graying-green globe 

playing your grown-up games 

disguised by your lack of years 

but what do I know 


an emerald carpet unfurled 

at your feet    the wind-ruffled 

fringe that lines your path 

as green as mine is gold 


there   by the water   behind 

your thoughtful gaze   do I see 

you slick and strong   counting   

your evenly measured days 


what did you do to climb so far 

up the ladder of your life  to glisten 

as you do   beneath the ever-shining

sun that warms your world
