Susan Awbrey • I Looked Up

I Looked Up

I looked up and I was old
      The loose, wrinkled skin
      The lines that leave their traces
I looked up and I was old
      The scars of former illness written there
I looked up and I was old
      I ask my body why it has forsaken me
      It said it has been there through it all
I looked up and I was old
      But my spirit is the same
      Youth but a breath away
I looked up and I was one
      With ancient earth and new born robin
I looked up and my gaze rose
      Beyond my mollusk shell to the infinity that is now
