Writing Workshop - A Poem

I am going to post this before I have the chance to change my mind, the last time I wrote any poetry was at junior school, and it was probably as terrible as this one is but hey ho the prompt spoke to me.

So here it is my entry for this weeks brilliant writing workshop held by Josie at Sleep is for the weak.  I chose prompt number five - Time.


They say it heals

I’m not so sure

It speeds away so fast its blinding

It creeps along so slow its painful

It drags you forward and leaves you breathless

Making memories of what is past

Leaving behind another life

Taking you to a new horizon

Building a history and new beginnings

Life's little clock

Always ticking.

Go on over and see the other much more brilliant entries that have been posted by some brilliant bloggers.

Lazy Morning Cuddles

I love lazy weekend mornings, because I work and my other half works away during the week, mornings are always a real rush for Smurf and I, we both have to be ready and out the door by 8.00am. I drop Smurf off at his grannies on my way to work and then I spend the next 5 hours dealing with HR issues.

But Saturdays are different, Saturday mornings are all about Smurf climbing into our bed and us all spending half an hour watching cartoons and drinking tea and eating toast in bed, they are all about spending time together as a family.

I love those special moments, when Smurf is still all sleepy and cuddly, when I can pretend that he is not growing like a weed and will soon not want the cuddles and kisses from his mummy and daddy.

Isn't it funny that before we moved into this house that we now live in, which was around January, Smurf would not sleep in his own bed for a whole night, and I despaired about ever having a full nights sleep, now he quite happily sleeps all night in his own bed without complaint and I yearn for those sleepy cuddles...some people are never happy.!!

This week Tara gave us the prompt of "Still Life" for the gallery.
