On the Eve of November 14th

On the Eve of November 14th

They say it's an occasion for natural disaster;
and I've proof:

my blood pressure's started to rise,
my chin's (or should I say chins?) not as defined,
and morning's mirror isn't so kind.

No "evidence of causation", they say
but certainly "clear coincidence"
if 50's pivotal, then 51's
the beginning of a tsunami.

Is it coincidence tonight's supermoon is bold?
Asserts itself through naked branches,
stirring emotions...

Coincidence this past year
I've seen more Dr's than the past 10?

Tonight this illuminated token
will sink into the morn of my birth;

perhaps I'll treat its deposit as rejuvenation for mind, body and spirit?

Trying to play with the idea that the supermoon and my 51st birthday have something to do with one another...  Science has tried to prove that the supermoon is the cause of a number of the world's natural disasters...

They blame the moon with a lot of things.... but I just think he's a grand old man.

Happy birthday! Hope the moon is a rejuvenating one.

I think she is shining extra bright for your birthday. I remember 51. That is YOUNG!

Rosemary Nissen-Wade said...

I like the rejuvenation idea!

Happy Birthday. :) (I just had one too.)

Marian said...

Happy Birthday, Margaret!

You are more beautiful today than you have ever been.. with the advantage of 51 years experience.

Since I have passed the pivotal prime of 51 ( though it's a prime-number), just remember that 53 is your next real prime... sorry I'm in math mode today.

Oops, Middle Age? I used to count my useful life as the years between 22 and 76. Then I take the average and count that as middle age. That is 98/2 = 49. You're fine!!!!
But now I've reached and age where I count down to 'no more', no longer up to a ripe age. You are double lucky, Margaret. :)
Besides you write a really good sob story poem.

Years mount, but for me the moon gives me a few breathes of timeless.

I smirked as I read this because I so feel you. Aging...ay yi yi! But, you are fabulous--definitely take it as rejuvenation, young lady!
