Thursday Thoughts on A Wednesday

Thursday Thoughts (little verses)
 started when I had Thursdays off...
Now they happen more or less where ever they land:)
The ladies were teasing me that my mind is likely composing a poem
as we conversed etc. this morning but it just does not work like that...

I often sit down, not planning on the words that come!
They often take a direction all their own
even when the hunger was for a poem of an entirely other nature.
All said, it was a fun, far too fast few hours!



In time we begin to appreciate Appreciation
Valuing the simple celebration
Of what is

***

As the years go by we learn to re-learn
How, what we thought we knew
Was a stepping-stone
To what we think we know
For now

***

It is not enough
To spout love-poems
Love is a second-mile language
Often in plain, sometimes painful
Syllables

***

To know when to speak
And when to be quiet
Now, there is a woman!

***

It all goes by so fast
We should remember
Not to forget
To remember this

***

The will to be willing
Is a battle half-won
But the battle to be willing
Is never quite done

***

 We should give today all we can
No more
But no less

***

Let’s admit it
We should quit it
All this keeping score
*If we have each other
We have so much
To be thankful for

with family-ties to this community!

Let's commit to cherishing each other with gentle kindness while we may!
