time keeps on ticking...





Busy! Happily, busy.
The house has to wait.
The dust gets thicker.
The laundry is clean, but not put away.
Time keeps on ticking.
I want to be wise.
The house won't last.
The kids are getting bigger.
The time is getting shorter.
Time keeps on ticking.
The floors have drool.
The windows have fingerprints.
The floor has crumbs.
It is a house lived in.
The little people are getting bigger.
The time is getting shorter.
Time keeps on ticking.
The toys are left out.
The legos are hotels.
The books are left open.
The sounds are happy.
Time is ticking.
The house doesn't live.
The people within the walls do.
Invest in them wisely.
All too soon,
It will be quiet.

good job, Shani. Loved the imagery. And, indeed, time is ticking....away.

Good and so true. I live alone and don't worry with the house and "stuff", but those with others in the house, really need not worry with it. Time on this earth is short and it'd be best spent on and with people than stuff. Amen, sister. What I wouldn't give to hear the pitter patter of any feet in my house, tiny or large.
Have a good one...
Love,
Paula
