Wanderer...

of successes and failures
now made a truce
agreed! life is fair...

blaze of the eyes
reflections of the skies
conjuring the soul
collage of truth and lies

horizon still lures
journey is incomplete
magic wand of yester years
became the walking stick...

too weak to walk
too stubborn to bow down
sand of roads,
has become the soul
coloring the hue brown...

colors are fading
distances retreading
through wandering westerlies
this life is wading....

                                                         "the fallen poet"....


Prompt:The picture....the life of a person who carries on walking through life despite failures and successes.

Sorry for the disappearing act... Nice one, captured the essence of an old withered individual with hope to still tread ahead beautifully!

Take Care.

in the scorn of his miserable old age..he ponders how little he enjoyed the years...when he had strength...
He remembers the impulses he curbed....and how muchjoy he sacrificed.
Every lost chance now mocks his senseless wisdom....
