I look at the expanse before me
Paper squares with ordered numbers
Three hundred sixty-six days
A leap year, elections
School days, vacations
Dance, sports, band, play
The drive – to, from
The laughter and the tears
And, of course, all the yelling
One year will again go so fast.
Look at this expanse of hopefulness
A late entry for Patrick’s Pic and a Word Challenge #212 – Expanse. As 2019 draws to a close, I felt a need to describe my feelings about the upcoming year. A year seems like such a long time but the day to day living makes it go by quickly. Even these last two weeks have sped by. Every night, I’ve been asking myself, “What did I do today? Where did the hours go?”
I’m hoping to savor 2020 a little bit. The first decade of the 2000’s have brought so many changes and I feel like I need to take some time to re-evaluate what has happened, what I’m doing and where I’m going. I hope you stay with me on this next journey around the sun!
