Time is a thief it steals your youth , your looks and often your belief.

The sun shines on the righteous so put up you umbrella.

Lost is the the ship that ignores the light, it will founder on the reef.

Mr right will come soon  so make sure you get the right fella.

If you like walking a dog take the lead.

Stars come out at night because they can’t out dazzle the sun.

Life is a tapestry so be careful not to drop too many stitches.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

The cookie told me my luck was just about to change

I thanked God for that because,  things round here were really mighty strange.

Really it could not get much worse I was beginning to think I had  been cursed

I’d lost my job, and what was worse  the damn  car was stuck in reverse.

My friends knew I was really sad, so they took  me out for a Chinese  meal

Hoping to improve my lot, they hoped a meal would change  the way I feel.

Sadly for all their effort and kindness I can clearly say it did not.

No, not even the cookie’s message helped , my luck did not improve a jot!

    I love the images that go so well with the poem…and I like the subtle humour at the end of the poem. Definitely a relatable piece of fine poetry! =D

    Beautiful artistry to set apart your beautiful words. I like both but must admit, the second one is my favorite.
