  1. Wow! Well, sitting in my rocking chair, this form rocks!!! The explanation of it reads like one of my complex knitting patterns and challenges me to follow it! We should use this as a dVerse prompt some day! I must say, that although I am in that “expected” age group, I am rejuvenated (not retired) so fear not — when you get there, you can still rock! And not only in a rocking chair. 🙂
    So — I am copying or bookmarking this page so I can try this form. It’s another poetic sudoku for sure 🙂
    Happy Friday!

  2. I love the last six lines. 🙂

    And this …

    “Those things that are expected then
    Once I reach that stage
    When I’m more”

  3. Fun form, fun topic. BUT–you will be surprised at how fast those gray hair-wrinkled years sneak up on you and you DO NOT need to give into them. Color your hair, love your wrinkles and rock on–I do.

  4. What an amazing form and oh, how your words rocked this. Being 64, I have decided it is the new 40. I dig my long white hair and dress as I did when I was a teen at Woodstock…and at this age, it works. One is old as they want to be. Today I choose to be 30.

So? What do you think?
