March’s Admonition

Rooster crowing

“Wake up!

Oh sleepy head!

Time is marching forward,

But your body clock is an hour

Behind!”

Plum Talk

Plum tree full of ripe purple plums

I’ve been Plum tired,

And at times Plum tuckered,

But Plum crazy I’m not

Senryu

A bit of humor in my poem today. 😊

Seeing this plum tree while on my walk a few days ago caused me to remember some old phrases my dad used to say when I was a kid.

Finishing Well

Tanka poem about finishing well at work or in life
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014

Whether you are working in retail, or a customer shopping, when you share a smile or laugh it can really make someone’s day. Try to make it a point to give a smile or kind word during this busy Holiday season when a lot of people are over worked, rushing, or stressed out.  It will help them and you.  🙂
