Power Surges and Becoming a Crone

How could I know
the second half of life
would feel so strange

like

a hormone raging
hair raising
back talking
teenager

but wiser
I hope

still

chaotic feelings swirling
power surges
sweltering
blistering
heat

nights of writing as sleep evades
days of contemplation as
my soul breathes into my ear

how could I know

what used to matter
wouldn’t matter anymore
and what matters is so

unexpected

days of creating
splashes of color
and
swirls and spirals
weaving into the crevices
of

my
be
ing

feeling my way into
embracing
the crone

staying open to
what may come
knowing that more of my life

most likely

is behind me
and

I’m good with that.
