TIME FLIES

dVerse Monday challenge, a quadrille of
exactly 44 words using the word GIGGLE
Submitted February, 2017
*************




Moustachioed and muscled
Quite manly, I find.
Confident, efficient
Humble and kind

Gray at the temples
How can that be
Where has time gone
Too fast for me

Echoes of giggles
Sweet baby smile
Could I get that time back
Just for a while?

  5. You can always get the giggles back, but the rest seems to me to have fallen in subjection to the law of gravity, lol. Giggles are better anyway, thanks

  8. Lovely words and memories.
    Where does time go indeed? How can my sons now be men - one greying at the temples too.
    Pleased to report my grandchildren are still young enough to giggle - long may it last!
    Kind regards
