A grownup is a child with layers on.—Woody Harrelson

I’m a child

with layers on

like an old tree


in clay-sand-humus

tickling the sky.

This is my final quote in a series of three about growing old—preceded by ‘Mind over matter’ and ‘Fifteen years from now’. I would like to extend my thanks to Kim Russell who invited me to join in with a Three Day Three Quote Challenge.  If you enjoy poetry and creative writing by accomplished authors, I highly recommend her blog:  Writing in North Norfolk.  

My challenge nominees are:

Laura’s Photos

Drink Life to its Lees

My Journey with Hijab

Rules of the challenge:

  1. Post three quotes over three days.
  2. Name three nominees each day (no repetition).
  3. Thank the person who nominated you.
  4. Inform the nominees.
