smiles...trying to hold off the aging process...i hate to think of what i might look like when death catches up to me...
Amen to that. Lots of water, moisturizer and covering up in the sun. Works for me. Thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160.
this was such a great bit of writing and on so many levels ... how i can take so much away from so few words is amazing ... needless to say i enjoyed your centus!
I'm with you! In the past five years my skin looks more like the Mojave Desert than anything else...=)
This is great - short and sweet and speaks to all of us of a certain age!I love the analogy of rough skin and a shipwreck. Great take on the prompt!Namaste..........cj
Like the way you put this together for so many prompts - now that is talent!!!
hahaha, you and me both.
Short and sweet and definitely dealing with something I understand. There is nothing worse than rough hands!
It is sad if people get that feeling of being marginalized!! Whitening creams or retarding the aging process or even hair colors, all come with their faults, and you end up looking like freaks!! What a heavy price to pay :( Be natural is what I would advocate!! :) Your post brought smiles. :)My Post - Return to Sea
You won't die young, but, this did make me smile, rubbong cream in your hands.... just in case.Lovely imagery :)
I like the idea behind the poem. Just thought I'd let you know that your comments on my blog are flagging up as spam, I think it's because you always include a link.
Don't fall into the modern trap, just age gracefully and be yourself. The truth of one's character will always show through the wrinkles.
:) Really nice words used here. Gaurang.
Hahahaha ! I love it !Brilliant...no one likes being marginalized, especially because of age ( first time I read it as margarine - ilized 'cause of the cream LOL )
Shipwrecked skin!! I'll take shellac thanks. :)
An interesting outlook. (Visiting from Carry on Tuesday). One definitely would not want shipwrecked skin.
"Shipwrecked" hands... love it! Such a clear way to sum up a sentiment everyone feels, from time to time.
LOL Kind of like making sure your underwear has no holes. Fun write.
A vain last wish, I think not, many a time I have heard people comment on the appearance of the newly rendered corpse.
G'Day, thanks for your visit. Short and full poem you have written here. I know at you mean.
Shipwrecked skin -- what a super-great poetic image. And one must keep at the skin at all ages. Sun avoidance is key. But glycolic peels can work wonders!Hope you are feeling great today!xoOh, and funny to me my word verification is "tancod." Maybe codfish can tan and still look young?? :)
funny what concerns us and when.honest poem.

Gosh.I read this and thought about it.And read this and thought about it.And I have come to the conclusion that you are the master of the metaphor. This was brilliant.Loved it.
Excellent words of poetry!
