Don't Become A Raisin

The nourishment flowed
from the earth
up through the vine
into the stems
filling the grape
with juices
that define its life
once harvest day arrives
its lifeline is removed
growth ceases
the juice of life leaves
its fruit hardens
its skin wrinkles
its will to live vanishes
it slowly becomes a raisin

Retirement can be great
don't allow your life juices
to dry up
