Mayfly

Sometimes

I wish I was

A mayfly…

To live a lifetime

In just

One

Day.

Be born

Live

Love

And die.

A mayfly needs

No school

No work

No stuff

It merely

Sees

Breathes

Flies

Eats

Loves

Lives

And dies.

Surely

That is

Enough?

 

I recently read an article by Mary Jaksch at writetodone.com suggesting writing poetry (read more to find out why). This poem is my first attempt!

About verawrites

Progress not perfection - that's my goal. Live and learn - that's my motto. I like to share bits of wisdom and glimmers of insight gleaned on my life journey of 50+ years. My hope is to encourage, perhaps inspire, fellow journeyers. Each of us has something to share. Let's be generous, gracious and compassionate with one another. I am blessed to be a blessing... so are you!
