Frail but Strong of Mind

In the corner of a quiet room, she sits practicing her daily ritual

Flexing mental muscles with painfully snarled hands

Sepia pages caressed, crunch and whisper with each turning

Filmy eyes dimmed with time

Stroke with cumbersome sweeps every weighty word

Held strong within frail walls

Her potent mind, a substantial fortress

Bolsters her feeble body with powerful wisdom time cannot steal
