BIRTHDAYS

measuring time—
twenty-five or thirty-some years
yet to go … or less
looking at past records
of family births and deaths

my dad felt a hundred years
was too long to stick around for
my mother thought that ninety-four
was quite a bit too short
neither was pleased

don’t know what I’ll think
when my world and I transform
when time becomes eternity
maybe I’ll notice, or perhaps I’ll
forget what came before

Day 23 – Listening | Poem a Day (NaNoWriMo)

Dry Leaves on the Grass

no more ideas
nothing to be done with that
but to keep still
listening from my silence
to the heartbeat of the world
