I love the concept of her face no longer fitting.

Great haiku. The link between the sweater that doesn't belong and the face that also doesn't is wonderful.

This is scary...I have one of those cardigans. I also have a face that is beginning to slip its mooring. Change will happen.

The poem is exquisite. It is sad but not forlorn. The way you present it is powerful too. If it had been "frilly" or sentimental, it would have changed the power of it.

My "Change" is here. Thank you!

(I'm adding you to the blogroll; is that OK?)

Andrée said...

duh to me! Already did that!

Beautiful- and from an old woman's pespective - thought provoking on multiple levels. Love the way you presented it too. Brava.

This is so true and so fitting for so many of the elderly women I see in my work.
