All The Time in The World

How do you approach the wheel of time —
do you ride her
stick your foot in her gears
ignore her slow grinding
write poems of her elusive movement
sync yourself with her dance
or cry out in the cold night of her injustice & indifference?
~Terri Guillemets

Empty Nest


I always thought I had

All the time in the world

My babies and I and

Their handsome dad.


We were inseparable

Lived a happy life

Passing years brought

Joys incomparable.


There was lots to do

Dance recitals

Football matches

Some days even two


We stuck together

Managed to pull through

Our little family

Cheered for each other


Now the house is silent

The Babies all grown up

One has flown the coop

The other planning to.


We sit on the porch swing

And reminisce about the past

Just then the phone rings

Our son is coming home, at last.

  1. Loved your take on the prompt. Time is an important resource and the time we spend with our family and kids is the most invaluable. When I am browsing my phone while my 6 year old son tells me his long tales, the moment I realize I am not all ears I switch off the wifi because he may not be telling me his stories always.

  2. The empty nest syndrome.????? At some point in life, I am sure I would probably feeling similar emotions… Until then capture moments in the heart , cause as you say time isnt going to stay forever.. SIgh!!!
