Tribute to the Dunes Theatre of Zion, Illinois  1948-2014
The Dunes was torn down today.  I and my family have many fond memories of watching movies there.

We were wishing it would have been saved and restored.

Busyness

busyness, whirlwind, Mirror Cinquain poem
Original Poetry by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014
(graphic from clker.com)

Three times today the word “busy” came up as I attempted to have conversations with different people. This prompted me to ponder upon why we are all so busy that we seemingly have no time to stop and take a few minutes for a friendly chat.  Thus this poem was written to share my frustrations.
