Party Days.

Party Days

Eighteen years ago one month from today, the party started.

Cheeseburgers in Paradise and blew out a flip flop in the air.

Now at work, almost grown up, on the way to independence day.

This is my entry for this weeks Sijo Poetry Challenge with theme/inspiration of PARTY.

There are details in the prompt on how to write a Sijo, a syllable based poetry form similar to a haiku but originating in Korea.

Now I See

Now I See

I once saw through eyes tinted by past lives… my own and others.

Mistakes made from then till now… guiding hands toward a dark end.

No longer blind… free of mind… eyes now see the world in its true form.

Full Speed Ahead – a poem

Full Speed

Waiting to reach a number… thinking wisdom comes with age.

Surprised… discovering more mistakes and foolishness ahead.

What brings maturity and wisdom… surviving and embracing it all.

If Only – a poem

If Only

To know then what I know now… what a difference it could have made.

The mistakes, the miss takes, the timid moments and the terrible.

What would today be if those long ago days had been golden.?
