A SUDDEN INSIGHT'S COGNIZANT GLIMPSE  (11-17-2020, 12:07am, Palm Springs, California)

as i
continue
to age
along my
lifes
increasingly
accelerated
journey here
with
sixty seven
now just
around
the bend
only
two and
a half
quick months
away
this sudden
brief insight
just occurred
to me
here
upon seeing
my naked
bodys reflection
in the
bathroom mirror
from whence
this spontaneous
seed thoughts
new poem
sprang forth
and so
quickly
arose
to say
and express
this here
now
i
await in
the kindness
of shadows
i
hide from
the cruelties
of light
seems
so strange
to hear
these words
arise
coming
up
from me
here now
as i
enter ever
more deeply
into these
too quickly
rising shallows
of these
my latter
days years
for as
i suddenly
recall here
just now
in this
brief
fleeting moment
of my
present
looking back
seems it
was almost
always nearly
the opposite
of that
throughout
all the
years
of my
earlier youth
for my
shadows
back then
were a
different kind
of darkness
altogether
in which
all forms
of cruelties
lived
expressed
and
acted themselves
out
so invasively
in my
young life
while
all light
on the
other hand
at least
as far
as i
can recall
or remember
here now
from way
back then
was my
kindest
and truest
of allies
and friends
but what
should that
insight
mean
to me
here now
overall
in context
to where
im presently
still at
in this
ongoing
even greater
sweet mysterys
more quickly
unfolding
rich tapestry
of what
i now
sense
and perceive
as my
increasingly
waning
life
