TODAY

Today . . . like an intermission
when time hangs a curtain
between some vivid memory
and the "still to be" . . .
and we gaze half-tense
at things not certain
with hope, and yet suspense.

  1. "Intermission" dear Magie a great friend of mine...

    Lots of fabulous things happen during intermission, even a sudden, unexpected one - as right at present.

    I am terribly sorry to hear to have a foot injury.
    Hope it was not serious and pain is under control.
    Get better soon sweetie

    Big hug

    Having trouble posting...(!!!)

    I recognize that curtain as it seems so often between me and those memories...
