In the moment / between enthusiasm and memories / three decades of Mid-Life pass
Mid-Life

         for Wordsmitty

In the moment
between enthusiasm and memories
three decades of Mid-Life pass
in a flash that keeps
inner fires barely burning
and embers banked,
until a frisky breath-like breeze
passes over them
to warm numb flesh
and remind cold bones
that dawn still blooms
beyond twilight,
where night passes into the light
of another day — another life,
that begins anew with eyes wide open
and the joy of being innocent
once more.
