all the decades

all the decades
it waited for her
and held a place
for her old age

This poem was inspired by the Tinywords Writing Prompt for Issue 14.1.

five roads
from this corner
now I know
my way home
on them all

home from mailing
poetry notes
monarch butterfly
greets me
at the back door

The prompt also recalled a few poems from my blogs.
