The Silver Thread

no airbrushing there
lines radiate from the corner of her eyes and mouth
mapping a lifetime of kissing
speaking
weeping
she wears her state of mind proudly
on a face framed by a sterling mane
atop a body well lived
no slave to narcissism
she revels in the joys of self discovery
for she who knows herself
is content
and will never lack mystery
