Book Details

Another Collection of Poems about Aging

When you lose your vision, your hearing and your balance, it’s hard to find any humor in the inevitable aging process. These all too human conditions—from wrinkles to worn-out knees, counting calories and colonoscopies, and all the aches and pains in between—form the backbone of Body Language, a hilarious collection of poems that lament the infirmities of age. We can all relate to the frustration of aging body parts, but if you can poke fun at yourself, you can handle whatever life hands you! So read, enjoy, and laugh! And remember, “Though our bodies do not function / As they did when we sought action / With pills and exercise each day / We hope that we will be OK…”
