A life in a poem - very, very special! Thank you for sharing this with us!
The sensitive portrait of the old lady fits very well to these impressive poetry.
Many hugs, Dagmar

A wonderful image of this fine old lady .... the hint of a smile suits her well, giving an idea of how young and lovely she must have looked..... and how young she must still feel in her heart. Your wise citation makes one think, Inez - a great combination of photograph and words.
A fantastic portrait with a very touching story and poem Inez. You have all my respect for your love of the aged. This old lady had the most beautiful smile and you captured it so well. Well done my friend!
oh my friend the poem is so moving, so true, so full of love, respect for human soul whatever happens to its body, I'm deeply impressed, thanks so much for sharing, I'll keep these words close to my heart
And you choose such a nice portrait of this old llady with her wonderful smile and this way to look straight in our eyes, it adds to the power of the words !
in the case of your beautiful ancient lady here, it's easy to see "beyond the shell" – the whole essence of her being has just surfaced and spread on her face for this great portrait of yours: her personality, her memories, her history it's all there dancing a triumphant and kind dance for us! sometimes, though, i find it hard to be patient enough to see through all the wrinkles, frustrations, the grumpiness and also intolerance of some old people i encounter in the streets or on the bus – still a lot better off than the nameless old lady who both moved and shamed her nurses to tears with her rhymes! i guess the better off you are, the less problems you have the more you tend to complain about the world, the young, the irreverance… it's a two-sided enterprise: to care rather than look away, to accept rather than judge, to tolerate the other and fight once own stubborn prejudice – goes for both old and young i think. and yes, i'm guilty, too of sometimes seeing "crabby old women" rather than individuals with a personal history and soul – your portrait is a great reminder to not let those "basics of human interaction" slip away but to make an effort to overcome the "generation gap"! hugs, sabine.
A PRO, not only for an excellent portrait of a graceful old lady, but also for the intent of making us look beyond wrinkles and grey hair.
We ought to discover the person behind this mask, to appreciate her / his personality and to take advantage of her / his experience, no matter who this old person is, the one of the photo, the old man at the park or the old lady in the shop.
Thanks Inez for this wonderful picture, and the wonderful poem ...
