You wake up one day and realize youâ€™re tenÂ years older than you were the previous night. Beyond the initial shock, how does this development change your life plans?
Dear new Wrinkle,
I wish to extend myÂ apologies that I could not show you myÂ excitementÂ and anxiety at your arrival which you deserved. I was unprepared for this date but then you only decided to visit me on a spur of a moment. Though bit uncomfortable with your presence Â it was certainly not all hell broke loose for me after meeting you.
Since I didn’t mind your unanticipatedly landing but let me apprise you with some facts and conditions before you start feeling at home. You must not expect any special treatment here at my expanse. No pampering and extra care will be extended to you. Be my guest and enjoy the hospitalityÂ extendedÂ to other aging agents members.
You have to share space with my grey hairs camouflaged with rich hues of plum shade, to feel comfortable with Â my eyes losing Â sight slowly, to bear with my expandable waistlineÂ reluctantÂ to reduce further despite crash diets, to be friendly with my sluggish metabolism and Yes… please bear with my skin sending warnings to sag anytime. There will be few more, like Miss.Double chin ever excited to pose while being clicked Â and Â dear show spoiler belly fat who simply refuses to leave me.
All my permanent guests Â live in peace and harmony with each other. Why I am telling you all this ? …… To make you aware of the fact that I am not going to run from pillar to post to get rid of you. It is neither disturbing nor depressing for me as I am perfectly at ease in your company.
You must be thinking,”How can I be so insensitive to you?” Sorry for my callous behaviour at the same time wish to inform you that my family,friends and well-wishers love me for what I am and not How I look at a particular age. Who is going to notice you at all except me ? Few wrinkles on my neck and face cannot dilute my status to an old wrinkled leather bag which has outlived its utility. So chill out my friend !
Â You don’t stand a chance to distract me as well as interfere in my daily course of things. Literally no time to count my wrinkles after whole day’s toil and sweat. My endeavor would be to indulge in productive things.Â
Rest is fine. I have some important tasks to accomplish, some challenges to meet and console people who fretted about your arrival recently. Moreover I have to feel happy that you can not harm my spirit to write. Hope you enjoy your stay with me. Looking forward to a healthy association. Wish you good luck.
The Spirited Soul 🙂

Great idea… n gr8 approach…liked the way you plan to treat the poor ol’ wrinkle!
All the best…lol!!
This time it had to be in prose therefore I thought of letter writing so that I deliberately stick to it. The topic was good enough to lure me for the poetic format.
Oh, this is my most favorite piece so far! It is full of humor and your sweet spirit. And it’s exactly how I feel. I earned each wrinkle…Besides, I would be most honored to have the beautiful character in the face of the woman in the above picture. You can feel her soul smiling! You need to start collecting your essays…It would be nice to pass down to your kids and grandkids someday.
I remember writing about a wrinkle once…I wonder where it is? In my family we don’t get gray hairs until really late in age. My dad was in his 60s!
So glad to be here on your pages…hope it’s not too far in between visits. Where are you getting your daily prompts?
