A NEW POEM

October 2, 2014 at 7:32 pm 2 comments

I was just minding my own business and this happened.
I don’t know where it came from, but there it is.

NOW AND THEN

Once deep thoughts ruled
The day,
Now the struggle
Is to stay awake.

Once creative labor
Ruled the day,
Now keeping house
Takes priority.

Once the lives of loved ones
Ruled the day,
Now distant memories
Fill the void.

Once hope of things to come
Ruled the day,
Now the end
Draws near.

So it is
The cycle reaches conclusion,
So it is,
A live spent.

    I don’t recall your ever sharing poetry with the group. But I like this piece, Walt. The emotion is palpable, raw.

      Means a lot coming from a poet.
