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


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

The Queen of Climbers


What a spectacular show

You put on for the travelers
Passing by your domain.

It is certainly one I want to see again.
Though I captured your full glory
Through my lens,
I should like to return again
To your domain,
And spend some time just enjoying you,
and the magnificent view
offered as you majestically climb
In full regalia of colors so fine.

Oh Clematis you’re such a  beautiful flowering vine!
