How time flies! by Rajnish Mishra

Today I plucked the first grey hair from my nose.
It surprised me:
one more step
towards old age.

It threw my mind back
to the day
I’d seen the first gray hair on my head,
the grey hair that remained the only one
for many years as it stood as the end of a phase.
It affirmed life.

This one confirms death.

How time flies!
