2015, February 20 – 254 – time

time keeps passing all the same
but as our allotment starts to wane
we try to do more
than we have time for
and end up not
enjoying any of it
as we rush to do things
we originally never thought of.


2015, February 20 – 253 – conversation

trading ideas
and bartering stories
a long lunch
to share
a part of our minds
and a glimpse of our lives
laughter and loud voices
debate and accordance
until the topics
fade to rain,
the glasses are empty,
and the bill must be paid.

2015, February 20 – 251 – progress 2

progress comes slowly
in small steps
day by day
crawling towards
a distant
unseen mark
feeling unproductive and stalled
until one day
you suddenly jump ahead!
or so it seems
success in a day
built upon a steady climb
and persistence
how can you enjoy the journey
when the scenery barely moves?
