My Favourite

In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, My Favourite

I miss you
My favourite
Those times
Oh, those times we spent!
In the twilight hours
The world between worlds
When the world beyond
Was no more
No more cares
No more worries
Now
My life is one long slog
One long fight
Back to find
My favourite
Peace and Quiet

Quote Me

In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, Quote Me

A little explanation need for this one. The quote I always come back to is one from Frank Herbert’s Dune.

The only constant is change

I come back to this when times are tough, to remind me – nothing is forever. Even the hard times will end. But also to keep perspective – I always try and think – will I care about what I am worrying about in 10 years time. If not – it’s not worth the stress now! (I know that’s easier said than done.)

With that quote in mind here is a quick Haiku inspired by it.

Even the mountains
Are impermanent giants
The wise realise

Kick It!

Let’s kick it into touch

Bucket lists!

Resolutions!

Traditions.

All they are really for

Is to transform you

Into the perfect consumer

Leeching away

All of you.
