“The Old Lady on the Corner” Poem-a-day November 2nd-Use an epigraph

“The habits of life form the soul, and the soul forms the countenance.”
Honore De Balzac

She never
looks content, wearing
uneasy
posture as
her skin folds, rough creases now
she hasn’t minois

minois: fresh young face

  1. i like your quote, Pamela. And I can picture this woman ‘of a certain age’, plus I learned a new word – minois.

    My poem: http://inthecornerofmyeye.blogspot.com/2011/11/legacy.html, as I cannot post on the PAD blog at all.

  2. Great quote Pam. Say, she looks young does she!

  3. I doubt we ever really know what we ourselves really look like to others. Yet, we see so much when looking at faces. Interesting character you have drawn here. Soon we’ll be through the first week. Stay strong,
