Just Plain Foolish

Just a chance for an old-fashioned, simple storyteller to say what needs to be said.

One Single Impression: Farewell

Snakelike, I slither out of dry skin,
tossing it aside
like old boots,
too small for me.

Ready to face the world anew
scales gone from my eyes
new skin rippling
in the bright sun.

A moment's pause to look:
a soft farewell to old skin
a moment of stillness
before new adventure.
