In My Shoes

Paper Collage “Shoes” by Leona J Atkinson 2020

While walking thru life in these shoes

I saw things I didn’t want to see

Came upon things I didn’t choose

While walking thru life in these shoes

I walked away from things I hated to lose

Stood firm when when I wanted to flee

While walking thru life in these shoes

I saw things I didn’t want to see

Triolet

Yes, many things I’ve seen and done in my 75 years, but nothing has quite been like what I am seeing and experiencing now during this virus.

I pray all our shoes will stand strong so that we will all be walking away from this time in our lives healthy and free to really live life again in a world that is free from this terrible disease.

Solomon Says:

Bench in the Sunset

Life’s on rerun

Nothing new under the sun

It all has been done

Haiku

The thing that hath been, it is thatwhich shall be; and that which is done isthat which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after. Ecclesiastes 1: 9-11
