OLD AGE TRAVELING

I do my traveling these days
either through the dreams I dream
or watching my television screen.

i control the television screen
and can change the channels
any time I wish.

When I want some quiet
I command my clicker with a touch.

The dreams are harder to control
snd offer me a panolpy of sights
I never dreamed of
but often try to figure out
before they vanish.

Life isn’t over yet
and I still travel some.

I appreciate the possibilities I have
to wander and to wonder —
though this happens in my shrinking world.
