Something Significant

Green fold up scissors

Small but great treasure

Tiny green fold up scissors

They’re never dull

Senryu

#NaPoWriMo 2019–Day12–Prompt: Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem about a dull thing that you own, and why (and how) you love it.

I have had this little pair of green fold up scissors for many, many years. I have always carried them with me either in my purse or in my car. There have been countless times they’ve come in so handy!

Count The Days

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.

Inner Reflection

Kindness in a person graphic

Kindness, a treasure

That’s outwardly visable,

Comes from within

Senryu

Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness. —George Sand
