One Step at a Time

Steps, feet climbing steps

Stepping out of my comfort zone

It’s difficult, thats true

Life is taking on different tone

Stepping out of my comfort zone

I’m out sharing, not sitting alone

Lots to see, lots to do

Stepping out of my comfort zone

It’s difficult, thats true

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.
