The bones ache

while the body takes

its time

at renewal.

The mind blanks

as time slips

into infinity

and then beyond.

What's left

but some stress,

a few notions.

Not much devotion.

Can a mind ache? If so mine is with the many thoughts this piece has conjured...~JPP

I can relate to the bones aching and rejoice in the renewal - away from devotion.

A wonderful ode, you've woven here, Joe. I look at these aches, even in my age, whether they be in my bones, muscles, sinews, heart or soul, as growing pains.
