#SoCS: Soar and Fly

My oh my, how we fly

From day of birth through good-bye

Decades pass

Memories last

But, still, we wonder why


My oh my, what is this life

Is it about husband and wife

A child or two

Or single in lieu

Or perhaps it cuts like a knife


My oh my, the days slip away

We pray for three seasons to stay

Time can be a snake

Age can take a break

Preferring to go out and play


My oh my, I am truly blessed

Life is being good, I confess

No longer at work

Not married to a jerk

Family, friends and a cat at my chest


My oh my, how we soar and fly

With a warrior’s battle cry

No tears to shed

No regrets or dread

We live life as our future stands by

Stream of Consciousness Saturday is the brainchild of author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with an inspiring blogger’s prompt. It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.

Just go with the flow.

Like a babbling brook or rain drops. Click HERE if this type of writing floats your boat or helps with your decision-making. Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “my.” Start your post with the word “My.” Bonus points if you end your post with “yours.” Enjoy!

        Ha! With the auto feeder, I now wake up to Gibbs sleeping on the other side of the bed and I have to push him off when I’m up and ready to make it. He gives me the same look that I used to give him at 4 am. Payback of sorts.

        Haha. Maybe I can get a robot to walk Maddie. Actually, I need the walk more than she does.

    Great poem! You bring out the best things in life we appreciate more as time passes. Three cheers for NOT being married to a jerk, a cat at your chest (or on my lap) and going out to play!

      I love playing, JoAnna, whether it’s on my bike or sharing time with friends and family. I feel blessed in that regard.

    That was lovely and bittersweet and true, and I think you should get 5 stars from everyone on that one!

      Thanks for the 5-star kudos, Joey! I never know if poetry is going to feed the readers, so I’m glad it did for you. 🙂
