SMALL THINGS

Weekly Scribblings and we're asked to consider
the importance of small things.  Certainly our
present situation gives us time to reassess our
values and realize the importance of small things
we've taken for granted.  A timely subject for
this week's poems.  The image I found on Facebook.
It seems lightning has truly struck our rainbow.

*****************

Been living in the land of plenty
If we wanted it, we put it on plastic
No need to save for a rainy day
Nothing would happen so drastic

Our values fell into decline
No time for church or Sunday dinners
The edges had seemed to blur
Between the good guys and the sinners

In the span of a month our lives changed
We’re closeted behind a closed door
Our friends and loved ones are dying
And we long for the days of yore

Perhaps it’s a time to reassess
The things  of enduring value
The people we really care about
And what has proved honest and true

It doesn’t matter if we’ve the biggest house
Or drive the fanciest car
We have time now to think about it
And realize who we really are.

  1. Yes, a time for that kind of reflection, indeed. How suddenly and irrevocably we were faced with it!

  2. It is difficult to think outside the box right now we are so focused on what unfolds every day. I want my sometimes light and breezy style to come bubbling up.

  3. Having "time to think about and realize who we really are." This self-reflection should be performed more often now. I like this examination of what's important in our lives.
