Aging mirrors

When I try to see my face
in the mirror this morning
something seems different.

A new, deep line, never noticed before.
I close my eyes for the facts.

I put on my glasses,
brush my teeth,
brush my hair
and with every action
I feel more gravity in my awareness.

Aging is interesting,
full of surprises.
And it happens to all of us
if we are lucky. Right.

Then I open my eyes
take another look
to get acquainted
with the new, older me.

Although I am grateful for life,
and lines don’t bother me really,
I still am more glad
to realize the new line,
as if my mortality is postponed now,
is a crack in the mirror glass.
