  1. Hour 2. Write a poem from the point of view of yourself, ten years ago.

    Ten years ago
    I was 65.
    I thought that age would never catch up with me.
    And then it did.

    I have found Facebook and internet postings
    that refer to the physical body
    as a “flesh sack.”

    A temporary home
    that houses our soul
    and then wears out.


    The flesh sack and I
    are formally parting ways.

    Step by step.
    Loss by loss.

    But I am no longer afraid
    as I switch my focus
    to the soul.
