Whispers of
dandelion clocks drift
earthward while

at my door
the wind breathes its message:
‘Enjoy life!’

Time holds sway
as the rollercoaster
dips and swerves

till one day
the effervescent trail
dissolves and

my white shirt for work, I
submit to

Oh no!
And what symbolises it better than ironing the white shirt for work?? Argh. Expertly done, Joanie. We can all identify with that one. And the rollercoaster works really well to signify time passing too.
Ireally like this:

Another good 'un.

I thought that too - nothing like ironing a shirt for work to bring a dose of reality to life BUMP
