An Ageless, Timeless, Man

an-ageless-timeless-man

Baby-blue eyes on a face that's seen life

Wrinkled and brown beneath hair that's snow-white,

Yet the pale blue eyes , still are the same,

Deep with emotions and memories.

Memories of pleasure and pain..


No bitterness carried in you or your eyes,

Kindness is all that shines through.

With love and acceptance of things that went wrong.

Acceptance of wrongs is what's made you strong.


And so here you are.... you and your guitar,

Drawing large crowds as ever before.

Because beauty runs deep and wrinkles don't matter.

The beauty in you still shines through your eyes.

The words that you sing? Each one is a prize.


And we are the winners who listen to you.

Long may you sing, white hair and wrinkles,

Scroll to Continue

With a heart as big as the planet.

That's the way l see you. xx

Extraordinary man and great article.

"Sunday Morning Coming Down" is one of the best songs ever written.

I listen and I'm back on streets of L.A., Charleston, SC, ...

And Sunday morning is coming down. The streets are mostly empty early in the AMs. The homeless gather around a bottle. Loneliness takes a stroll.

And as I cycle on these Sundays with Sunday morning coming down, I appear "aloof"? A fast bike is beneath me, I wear the cyclists' clothes, I seem fit?

But I am the common denominator whether I'm recognized or not.

Above it all? I'm a few threads and tires.

There's nothing quite as lonesome as Sunday morning coming down.

Thank you, Dream On. I love the lyrics of some of his songs.

You see right through deep into his soul. Way to go. A lovely hub.

Sunday Morning Coming Down is also one of our favourites(hubby).

Reminds of of being young.

Sundays can be awful can't they?

My favorite song that Kris ever wrote,

May not be of any literary note.

But lonely riding through any downtown,

Evokes "Sunday Morning Coming Down".

I have always liked Kris K. There is genuineness to him…a natural down to earth quality that is both warm and graceful, with wisdom. You have captured him well in this lovely poem, Dim. :-)
