Fall Back and Extra Hour

Fall back with autumn leavesThe best thing about changing the time in fall, is that we can fool ourselves into thinking we have an extra hour. indian about daylight savingsLet’s play along and choose what we will do with the extra hour?  Read, write, do arts and crafts, watch TV longer, exercise, sleep, the list goes on.

This morning I planned to work on writing Chapter Twelve since I could finish it in less than sixty  minutes. It’s 7:10 p.m., I just returned from the office, and I’m too tired to do anything. I guess I’ll sleep during the extra time. Jill, my POV character, will have to wait until the morning.

So, what did you do or will you do with your extra hour?

Iambic Group Poem Needs a Title

Here is the Iambic Group Poem, Glen Meisenheimer guided us to produce at the Poetry Workshop last week. There were 12 participants, but we forgot to title it. Any suggestions?

The time she waits on none who tarry long

Instead she dances t’wards her scheduled end.

Ignoring worries; seeking pleasure’s song,

She hopes to make the day a lasting friend.

The other side of time we know is death.

She nudges us along to paths not sought.

Although we fight for every passing breath,

The end will come to all no matter what.
