Seasons Of Life Change #Poetry

Feeling poetical…

We talk about life like seasons
Those different stages of life
The spring being our childhood
Summer, settled with husband or wife
Autumn comes bringing changes
Then winter creeps up on us all
It’s in our hands, our legacy
Do we leave smiles or tears that will fall?

But recently the seasons
Have not conformed too well
The fresh spring being frozen
The summer a fiery hell
And autumn, well thats still a muddle
Sometimes cold, sometimes hot
But winter merges within it too
Do we need woollies or not?

And so it seems life is following
A pattern just as confused
Our childhoods seem to be shortening
It’s hard to keep kids amused
Adulthood creeps up on us quickly
Responsibilities turning up heat
Some live a life of luxury
Others scamble for food to eat

Midlife crises and changes
Creep upon us before we know
Even our ladygardens showing
Early sprinkles of ‘snow’!
And the winter, oh the winter
Lasts longer than before
Longer lives, better health, more resources
A blessing or a chore?

Life is not meant to be simple
Not always going to plan
And so we should remember
To take opportunity where we can
Do all the things you want to
Work, write, travel, cook, dance, sing
Don’t let your winter arrive
Having not done anything

#WritePhoto – Bone

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

A rugged landscape
Embellished with skeletons
Bones telling stories
What happened, no one will know
Unless these bones breathe again

Of Teen and Tweenage Angst #Poem

It’s a trying time in my household at the moment, filled with hormones and demands, mood swings and laughter. I can’t go into the details, but I can definitely pen a verse to get my own angst out!

Gone are the days when a parent
Simply battled with the Teens
These days we have a new breed
Calling themselves the Tweens!

Now with the Teens, it’s expected
Hormones raging through
But the trouble with these Tweens
Dear God, I wish I knew

It’s like ten is the new thirteen
And thirteen’s just as bad
Parenting’s never easy
But I don’t like this Tweenage fad!

I was prepared for seven years
Of total Teenage hell
But with these Tweens, they’ve added on
Another three years as well!

They stomp around in stereo
And fight at the drop of a hat
You cannot have a conversation
It’s just all rude backchat!

And if, perchance, things happen
To not go quite their way
You’ll get the silent treatment
Though they have so much to say

It flows in images and messages
On Social Media sites
Selfies, emojis LOL’s
To put the world to rights

Right now I live in a timebomb
Of tween and teenage tricks
What on earth will happen when I
Add menopause to the mix?

#WritePhoto – Faraway

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

An etheree for you!

Far
Away
Yet close by
Across the deep
I call out to you
My voice travels, airborne
Crossing miles I cannot see
You hear me, knowing I am there
A reassurance for both of us
Our bodies apart but our hearts entwined

#WritePhoto – Fall

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

Cascades
Falling water
Gushing, rushing, spilling
Circulating nature’s lifeblood
Rapids
