reBirth – A Quadrille

Evelyn 030

Peel away the years…

Your teeth tighten.
Your posture’s straight, and eyes brighten.

Peel away the years…

Grow trees from seed.
Grow luscious hair, your mind is freed.

Peel away the years…

You try to walk.
You grow a tooth, and babble talk.

BIRTH.

 

It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub… A 44-word Quadrille including some form of the word peel is on tap.
