Who is that woman?

This little poem is linked to week 128 for Saturday Centus with the prompt shown in bold.   And actually, right now, my reflection has no gray in it!   Thank heavens for good hair stylists!   Have a happy weekend everyone!

I twirl and I turn
and I whirl and I dance!
I forget I am old now
and I don’t even glance
into my reflection.
But I stop and I look
and feel growing dismay
The ripples show tapestries,
of red, gold and grey.
Some colors I remember,
some are new to behold…
And I stop in my tracks.
My time is now.
I can never go back.
To my youth filled with fire
and passions so bold.
I am here now!
Amazing isn't it?
How beautifully leaves grow old.

A beautiful poem, Jenny. I like that the woman is growing old but only in body. Ah, we should take note.
