Life on Hold


There’s this wise old raven

Yesteryear was his destination

Wanting to solve life’s equations

Stepped up to the occasion

But his memory was on vacation

    I am like the raven. Not in wisdom or the desire to travel to yesteryear but my mind is often on vacation these days. Your words made me chuckle. Thanks!

    Wonderful poem.. and I confess too, that at times my memory seems to be taking more and more vacations 😉 🤣😁

      Thank you and me too. A vacation or two is okay for our memory as long as it’s not permanent. 😎
