I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.

Never Too Old

Never too old for a walk

I repeat todays mantra

poorly prepared hands hide

hidden in pocket


Never too old for a stroll

extend hand to nearest friend

offer the joy of movement

let's see the morning


Never too late for sorry

humble over our mistakes

express lessons truly learned

forward along path


Never too alone to be

part of a community

a return from the hillside

embrace family


Never too early to learn

pass up opportunity

for total life expansion

knowledge is the key


Old but never truly old

just a youthful mind within

body that holds a purpose

for now just a walk

Enjoyed this one, as well.

Stay playful. The age doesn't matter as long as the heart and soul is on the beat. Great reminders in few words, more power to you! ( Wink)

I am glad you have a youthful mind. Yes, it's never too late. Life always gives us chances. Lucky are the ones who can see it, and I am sure you are. Take the advantage. A whole story in few lines of poetry. Superb!!

Blessings always

Yes, stay youthful.

We are never too old.

Let's take that walk.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 08, 2021:

I can relate to a youthful mind being in an aging body. Ha! Time for a walk!
