Sometimes…

Original watercolor of a sunset
Watercolor sunset by Leona J. Atkinson ©️2020

Sunsets like life,

End suddenly, shocking us

With bursts of color,

Or subtlely fade away

With faint hues of calm repose.

Pondering Paths

I was going,
But now, I’m not.
Plans change so quickly.

Another day passes,
As I do mundane tasks.
Time passes slowly.

Days become filled
With work and school.
Minutes fly by.

Sunrises in the East.
Sunsets in the West.
Moments in between are a blur.

Life–a daily gift.
Have I used it well?
Have I shared it with others?

The Lord of days
Watches it all
And ponders…

For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He ponders all his paths. Proverbs 5:21
