Tick Tock Table (c) By Polly Guerin

The acceleration of time puts me in a spin
The days flash by before I scarce begin

The minutes rush past as if in orbit
The hours join the race and forfeit

How can we hold back the time?
I’d give gold to solve the crime

Dreaming of a lush languid day
Before I sleep, I fervently pray

So much more to finish before I go
Into the abyss, for this I know---

February is the promise of a kiss
May brings with it may time bliss

Sweet June has a warm sandy heart
July rushes in with a flip-flop start

September renews autumn colors
October touches down with umbrellas

November’s family reunions top the scale
Then, December celebrations never fail

To let January sneak back into the race
Hold on, hold back and slow the pace

Don’t get frantic, take time to savor
Every morsel of the tick tock table.

Be open hearted to the new January blast
Take control, re-claim time before we pass.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015 Poem (c) By Polly Guerin

            Oh Celestial Stars Sparkling so Bright
Grant me this wish I’ve made tonight?

That peace and sanity spread over the land
And reconciliation the mantra, world plan
Counting the past lessons now learned
Bring in the New Year gift at every turn

Cast out forever, doubt and unfounded fear
A positive New Year emerges very clear

To focus on the good things yet to come
Make a list before the New Year’s begun

Welcome new opportunities in your path
New beginnings are here for you at last

Fast forward with energy into the future
May your heart uplifted be the suitor

Raise a class of champagne to yourself
Get ready for new ideas off the shelf

Recite affirmations, confirm your calling
With confidence your talent is scoring

Celebrate the gift granted, a brand New Year
May it bring you love and lots of good cheer!!!!
