One Single Impression: Preponderance

The prompt from onesingleimpression is preponderance. 



These things we hold
as inevitable,
like a mountain's stance
or the blue dream of the sky:

The slow graying of my hair;
the preponderance of wrinkles
taking over my face.

So I shall go quickly
into rain, and slowly under sun,
drink each moment like wine
aged perfectly.

Each day is a new forrest
where I will step and breathe
each step
until steps and breaths
are pulled away into the endless dance
of swirling infinity.
