In The Moment

I feel like I haven't written anything of substance in a long time. And I have no idea where my sense of humor went. I'm working on projects at work and traveling a lot and there's so much at home. I think it's because there is so much going on that I'm living very much, "in the moment", without time to think through a thought, much less flesh it out into a post. When I do have a spare moment, I very much need for my mind to be quiet right now, not trying to produce. There will always be tidbits and nonsense on my blog but I don't want that to be all there is. So I'm taking a couple weeks off. I doubt I'll be gone long. I'll be back as soon as I think of something...or something important happens...or I get know how I am.

For the moment, I wrote this a very long time ago. I posted it here a few years back, too.
I thought it would be appropriate because...'s happened again.

See You Soon : )

In To July

June has slipped
 through my fingers
A suntan oiled palm
Slipping out of my grasp
 to bask in sweat soaked July.
In haste to higher altitude
 this past, a time to remember
Held vaulted in film canisters
Waiting on my kitchen counter
 for lackluster rebirth
The summer child
notched in a doorframe
Two more to be etched
as milestones passed
After the Star Spangled evening.
I have yet to taste the salt
To gather the sun glittered
abandoned homes of sea life
To slowly drip a medieval castle
But I will do these things
Finish this heat induced scavenger hunt
The summer a shimmering runway I traverse
I fly at the end to Fall
Merely a mirage
As I crash land in the heat
Of my home town.

  1. It's amazing to me how each and every season slips by so quickly, and yes, summer is well on the way to doing that too. It's July 4th week and next thing we'll be talking back to school and Labor Day weekend. EESH!

  2. Now that sums up how quickly the seasons pass. So glad you reposted.

  3. The older I get, the faster time passes. Enjoy your time away, I'll look for you when you get back.

  4. Love this--an eloquent nod to the fleeting. How I wish there was a manual on how to pause the world...

    Enjoy your break, revel in being.

  5. I think there must be something in the air (or the water) at the moment - this is much how I feel and you're the second person who has voiced this busyness in their lives and living in the moment.

    See you on the return :-)

  6. I can relate on having not much to write, but I feel it is a part of my life what I do write. This year is flying by soooo fast. Hope you have a wonderful time off.
