Unfair Play

How did it get so late so soon?

It’s time for a weekly quotation-inspired image.

If the quote inspires a pictorial or wordy post from you, do feel free to link in or to pop your URL in the comments.- Debbie Smyth


“How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?”

Dr. Seuss

 

Unfair Play

how did it all pass away so soon

old age came before the youth could croon

how some young faces are full of wrinkles 
before they are swamped with 
smiles and twinkles
how did time so soon fly by
before saying a proper goodbye
how come nature is not fair for some
spring is so short, and
longest is autumn

Solitary- The Daily Post

solitary
not a sing leaf for its glory
remembering 
the days of its youth
birds and children
chirping and playing 
around it
when a single day 
would not pass
without a jamboree

The Daily Post- Bedtime

Posted on

In childhood’ bedtime was for a lullaby, stories of fairies, gnomes, demons, prince and princess, adventures…

In youth’ it was time for dreams for the future with open eyes, reading stories. How we procrastinated sleep. There was so much to think of, to make plans for the future, parties, cricket, football, and tennis matches. Who wants to sleep?

In middle age, bedtime was for introspection. How much we have achieved, how much is there to achieve. How much time we have wasted in daydreaming. Are we giving 100 percent to get what we want etc.etc?

Now at old age, bedtime is the time to worry whether sleep will come or night will pass counting sheep or worrying about the past or what is in store for us in the future. All the sleep procrastination of youth is punishing now with insomnia.

God of sleep eludes

Those cursed with insomnia

Blessed sleep blissfully

In childhood some played a lot  
In their youth some slept a lot  
In old age they repent  
How wrongful life they spent  
And  grieve for the lost time a lot
