World Overview

Man racing with time

Quickly jotted notes

Faceless friends and family

Life passing by

Living in a timeclock

Checking Apple’s watch

Running life’s racetrack

In a zombie world

Filled with roads to nowhere

Lonely souls needing God.

The time has come

May’s skirts rustle as she tiptoes

Through the dancing tulips 

Sowing seeds of florescence

Carpeting the world with flowers

11:11

Alarm clock with hands pointing to 11:11

I often see the time 11:11 on clocks

Some think it’s a angelic sign

Some say it’s promising sucess

But really, it’s not either of those

It’s telling me I’m late to work

Syllabic Verse

Coming Soon

Coming Soon sign

The sun has come forth to help us

Celebrate Spring’s soon return

She awaits now in the shadows

Behind time’s curtain

Sending forth samples

Of her season’s

Glimpse of new

Life and

Warmth

Count The Days

Roses and rose petals on ground at the Rose Garden in Portland, OR
Roses and rose petals on ground at the Rose Garden in Portland, OR—June 2012

We count our life in years,

But what about the days?

All the seconds of life?

Cherish all the minutes.

It’s in those moments,

Memories are made,

Chances are taken,

Changes often happen.

Treasure every breath.

Celebrate each day.

Give thanks for your life.

Syllabic Verse

My grand-daughter messaged me today to tell me I have lived 27,365 days so far! Where did all those days go?

It seems a lot longer when you view your life as days rather than years!

It’s pretty amazing to think about, and so inspired the thoughts for this poem.
