A Placid Face

– has a singular place –

Of many faces 
Lined so deep, 
A singular place
For time’s keep, 
Its story braces
Welcome sleep,
As shadows pale
Has ye find weep,
For memory frail
Persuades recall, 
Afore dreams fail 
One’s eyes too old,
Ye’d share in brail
Might ignore hold,
Now, a placid face
Behind a cruel veil,
Find life has carved 
Unpredictable paths,
Be in a singular place!

  1. Yes indeed those lines deep, a confirmation of living life as interpreted by one’s body and expressed thru one’s soul. Deservedly fair, we can but hope, alas as supposedly masters of our fate !
