I've realized lately

that I've traveled far

a journey now measured

by the passage of hands

on a clock dial;

of seasons familiar

re-visited time and again,

and lately,

I've found myself

measuring time

by counting the lines

on the faces

of those I've spent time with

and having to know

with each deepening line

this person

my mirror now shows me…
