Just Jot It January: Family Arithmetic

First  there  was  me  then there  was you

We  united  and  that  made us  two

Growing  close  we  became one

Then  a knew life came along

We  became two  plus one.

 

Moving on and  we  soon had another one

Our total rising up  to four

A nice round  figure,  then along came one  more!

Our numbers added up to five

Our youngsters keeping us alive.

 

Five  was our sum  for a long while

Then number five  met number  six  and that made us all smile.

So there  we stayed  for a while. Not  same as before

Different  for  all then suddenly  we find  there is one more!

 

So  here  we are at  seven

All is good  and  seems like heaven.

Dark clouds on the horizon, why do they always loom.

Mistakes  made, harsh words cannot  be erased, causing gloom.

How can we stop division of  the seven.

 

Please  don’t  let these problems  multiply

To add back up is always worth a try

I don’t  want  to have to subtract  three

That is a total I never want  to see.

Numbers

Memories : Nano PoBlano

Day 4  NANO POBLANO   Memories  a poem

 

They  wriggle  and they giggle  and they run and hide

But  you know that they are in there, you’re the one who put them inside.

They hint  and they suggest,  they rub around the edge

You have to keep them active for absence of them turns  your mind to veg.

 

They are beautiful  and ugly , huge and very small

They are  full of importance and yet  they have none at all.

Warm and soft  and fluffy , scary  , evil  and terrifying

Having  a birthday party or turbulence while flying.

 

Having  your  first baby  or your wedding day

But  when you have to answer  that  question you’re lost for what  to say.

Dancing with your first love  kissing him goodnight

Arguing  with your family  .. boy that was an almighty  fight !

 

Fighting off depression, facing down your fears

Memories dancing  and prancing escaping  through your ears.

Your first teddy’s name was Jingles your first job was blast

If  you let  your  memories run  it’s like  a film with a giant cast!

 

You  need to keep it active  you cannot let it rest

For if you do not use it deserts you and that is not for the best.

Watch it  very  carefully be aware of tricks it will play on  you

Remember  you must keep it buzzing or it will wonder off ,that’s true.

 

They  wriggle  and they giggle  and they run and hide

But  you know that they are in there, you’re the one who put them inside.

They hint  and they suggest,  they rub around the edge

You have to keep them active for absence of them turns  your mind to veg.
