Ah, youth!

Today I saw my friend's 18 year old daughter standing at the bus stop in the rain. She was singing and dancing to the song that was playing on her I-pod. She looked so happy! I just had to smile! How I wish for those uninhibited youthful days of joy!

Holy Temple

Every time
that I look
in the mirror,
I am shocked
to see
an old lady
back at me.

Dark circles,
age spots,
and gray hair
are beginning
to define
my appearance.

Help me
to remember
that no matter
how I look,
I am still
Your Holy Temple,
