A collaborative poem between me and Syl65! Syl was one of the first poets I met here on WordPress and his love poems are particularly tender and never fail to impress. Please visit his site to explore more of his work!
The days are flying by
And my calendar can’t keep up
Just got the sunscreen ready
Now there’s a sale on winter coats
Halloween costumes are shaking
Spidery webs and monster claws
But the leaves are still green
And I feel freshly thawed
I think I’m hearing turkeys
Gobble, gobble, gobble
Christmas decorations up already
My mind is starting to wobble
Champagne at year’s end
Although I’m still in summer
Should I be like a child sighing?
“Oh, what a bummer!”
Fly by days
Lead into fly by nights
Did the Mayan calender really end?
Or is there no end in sight?
So many thoughts
A-whirling in my head
Time to stop thinking of time
And simply go to bed.

Ah, if only time would slow down! =)
My beloved grandfather used to say, all the time, as he shook his head, “That ole time don’t wait for nobody…”
A pleasure and fun to work write with you T.
