As Time Goes By

Pen writing “Once upon a time” on paper

Life is passing by

Enjoy the living moments

While you have time

Savor every moment

Before it is gone

Grasping all those good times

While they’re in reach

Will give you good memories

A storehouse of treasures

Choka

It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It’s called living. —Terry Pratchett

Long passed

Yet on she lives

Memories and music

The treasures she left behind

For us

Cinquain

Gone too soon. “Sweet Dreams” Patsy.

April 2020

Earth “stay home” inage

April’s thirty days

Filled with uncertainty

Are history

Goodbye April 2020. You can claim you were the first full month of the pandemic.

At Day’s End…

End of Christmas Day--Tanka
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2015

At the end of Christmas Day, after all the excitement is over, the presents are opened, the wrappings are gathered up and thrown away, I am glad that the love of family remains.  Peace on Earth—Goodwill to Men.  Christmas Blessings to all.
