Monday WRites 92


[image from google dot com]

HANGOVERS
Settling to new year is serious business
Again with those calendars, tsk tsk
Birthdays forgotten in the last year, revisit
Careful to pencil in, stars added
Time and timing is serious business
Wisps of mornings in hues pastel
Mirror year's beginning in dawn's stillness
Reflections are ribboned in oranges and gold
Like sun, dipping into pool of night's richness
What's not boxed away, like last year's Christmas
Perchance to be resolved, is serious business

  3. Morning, Gillena! I finally made it. If I missed the idea of the prompt or something let me know but I think this is about posting whatever your mood tells you to on a Monday. WRight?

    Love your poem! Stop and smell the flowers. I am not wasting my calendar days anymore if I can help it.

    I've been having a hard time keeping up with the groups we write with lately. Life just gets you busy sometimes. I'm still writing though it might be hit and miss for awhile. So happy to post here today! Have a great week!

  7. Sooo true, Gillena. I just looked at my daily planner and laughed. While I was at the hospital today, I spent quite a bit of time promising myself that I would not be as forgetful (about some things) as I was last year.

  8. Remembering others, especially for BDays and year end holidays is very important for cultivating relationships. I have been wishing Happy New Year for Facebook friends who might ne wondering why I didn't return the wish.
    So I am leaving them this message:
    "Happy 2017 for you guys!!!
    We were in Uruguay (Montevideo) on Jan 1.
    Trying to catch up with the World now, it moves fast, gone cruising from Dec 4 until Jan 5."

    Time management and new year resolutions seem to go hand in hand. But the seriousness of having done them have been taken lightly by most people!
