September Acrostic

school bus

School days enter causing the
Exit of Summer fun days
Pupils moan
Teachers groan
Each must return to work
Mom’s smile and sigh
Buses awaken for daily runs
Everyone checks their schedules
Rushing replaces resting

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.  🙂
