Wrinkles

© Peggy Goetz: Village Midwife, Mountains of Honduras


the lines on her face 
a symbol of pride 
wisdom and knowledge 
memories etched in flesh 
for the world to see



~~~This poem was written in response to a prompt from Imaginary Gardens with Real Toads featuring the photography of Peggy Goetz, who blogs over at On a Day Like Today.  Be sure to check out her poetry and photographs.
