Daily Prompt:Grasp

Some things about aging, may cause a gasp

Wishing you had Cleo’s basket of asp

Hands lose the ability to grasp

To undo that favorite necklace clasp

Open an old trunk’s hasp

Or much of anything with class.


Arthritic/fumbly fingers start to rasp

On your mind as you lose that grasp

Not on reality, but the opposite

Knowing you can no longer “handle” it

Whatever it be, it irritates me

Holding something just to watch it flee.
