Temple of Time

If the body is a temple,
Mine is a ruin.
Worshipers who flocked
To service in youth
Have now moved on
To supplication elsewhere.
The steeple crumbles
As aging support erodes.
The altar is failing,
A painful denunciation.

**This is not to say that a woman’s body–as it gets older–is not worth worship!  This is simply about my own failing body as I deal with health issues that, while not deadly, are life changing and upsetting.
