although physical vision
continues to deteriorate
my mind’s eye sees in
ever sharpening
telescopic 20/20

the challenges ahead
coming in early morning
elderly fears
though not quite there yet

as opposed to childish night terrors
of how much cleaning up
disposal of personal possessions
yet to do
before it’s time to
cross that rainbow bridge

not wanting to burden loved ones
with my insecurities
material - why did I collect so much?
in youth
30 seeming so far away
40/50/60 even further

a cup of strong coffee
helps dispel the daily anxiety
steers me back to
the mission at hand
dig into the pile
in and outside my head
laugh off
what I have no control over

I suspect when I get there, I will have to laugh everything off {you know, laughing & crying, it's the same release - JM]
Yes, you have vision.
