So Blessed

PAD Challenge day nine: For today’s prompt, take the phrase “So (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.



Time roars through us
Our skin like shores
Cupping strange, phantom seas
Where glorious
And gloomy pours
From yon to yore with ease

So much to see,
So much to do
So little life, it seems
That sometimes we
Feel torn in two
By duty and daydreams

The more we live
The less we know
Of what we thought we knew
The more we give
The less we owe
When this 'hello' is through 

Eternity's
Tsunami, dear
Is closing in with haste
Where memories
Weave Now and Here
Into no time to waste

How happy is
The heart that learns
Within Time's quickened quest
A humble bliss
Where no returns
Can keep us oh, so blessed

Janet Martin
