Poetry Friday

Written at the beach, as I watched 35 kids run and splash and play.





Flows like the Wind
by Lisa Schroeder

Like the wind,
time flows
and blows.
I want to reach out
and hold it,
mold it,
behold it.
But it whips past
so fast
until
at last
I admit
it is not mine
to keep.
Instead
it is something I share
with those around me
who may not know
what a gift it is
today,
every day,
in every way.
Still, someday
they'll look back
and say
thank you,
as I do
in this moment,
because I know
it flows on forever,
never stopping,
no matter how hard
I wish
it would.


Happy Friday, friends!
