Poetry Day #30

Poetry Day #30

Today marks the last day for NaPoWriMo2020 which I have thoroughly enjoyed! So much so that I intend to keep writing. It may be poems, it be stories, or just thoughts or observances – hard to say, but it is a creative release that I find I need.

Our prompt for today was to write about something that returns.


Sometimes things come back

Use care when you are wishing

They may knock you out



All to often good things are gone

In the blink of an eye

The blooms of the daffodils

And colorful tulips fade quickly

Our time with the people

We love moves ever so quickly

Be barely get started before

Day to day realities beckon


We love our brief time

With ducklings and goslings

And look forward to next

Year’s season of birth


We hope and pray that some things

Never darken our doorstep again

Cancer, abusive relationships

We wish them good riddance and mean it


Yet sometimes it is those things that

Come back, when we least expect

Them and they hit us

Like a boomerang
