Another New Year

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.

Hold on,

Slow down,

Wait a minute,

is it my

imagination

or is time

picking up speed ???

Time flies when you are having fun …

Unfortunately for me, I didn’t learn to have fun

until I was almost too old to enjoy it.

Too busy living life I was, never enough time

to stop and smell the roses.

Today I try to live in the now, trying to slow time down

to a speed that I can enjoy, one breath at a time,

one heartbeat at a time.

Haiku:

Watching the ball drop

Time to flip the calendar

Another New Year

.

Elfje:

.

Time

Moving swiftly

Weeks, months, years

Trying to remember when

History

.

Poem:

.

too young to remember much

life was an innocent blur

remembering a mothers touch

memories attempt to make time repeat

.

puberty, adolescence and feeling

life was full stream ahead

too much time spent dreaming

memories attempt to make time repeat

.

responsible parent, social animal

life was a juggling act and some dropped the ball

even though most deemed themselves infallible

memories attempt to make time repeat

.

children grown, usefulness questioned

life becomes rejection and loneliness

we opined we had become a legend

memories attempt to make time repeat

.

we all sing auld lang syne

many drink to forget

memories and time become a blur

as we celebrate another New Year

.

.

ME and the Boss
