Poetry 101 Day 2: Today’s Prompt: Reflections


Blurred by time my memories are
What once stood close now stands so far
Twenty thousand days have past
Twenty thousand ways I’ve asked

A song can send me back in space
To watch my dreams from another place
A day of the week or time of the year
Can bring a smile or might a tear

reflectionsEach decade birthed a life of its own
With endless lessons and paths unknown
I wish of life a master was I
Passing tests and flying high

So many things that I would change
If only I could rearrange
So many things I’ll keep the same
To live in my heart’s picture frame

Hours pass like minutes do
When living in a thought or two
And even though the times have past
Reflections in my mind will last

    • Thank you, I loved the 20,000 days part, I calculated my age by 365 to figure out how many days I’ve been here. That’s actually snow “raining”, but I like the idea of stars better!! Blue is my favorite too, followed closely by hot pink/fuschia!! I thought the header looked Christmasy! xo

    • OOoo hot pink fuschia is a lovely colour too! I think we are definitely soul sisters hehe Raining stars/snow is a lovely touch and I certainly feel Christmassy when I visit your magical blog! I have been alive for 10’981 days!!! I hope I have that many more πŸ™‚ xx

    • I hope you have twice that many more. Actually WordPress is offering it, if you go under general settings and scroll down you will see an option for snow….it is fun isn’t it? And for sure we are Soul Sisters!! πŸ™‚
