Poetry Stretch: Sayings

For Poetry Stretch this week that we think about a saying and respond to it.  My grandmother was famous for:

“The hurrier you go, the behinder you get.”

Today is Friday
My mind says Wednesday
Been racing around all week
in circles
Chasing lists of things
to accomplish as summer passes through
Perhaps I should stop
Sit on the garden swing
And let the week
Catch up.

Poetry Friday round-up is at My Juicy Little Universe.

    So beautiful and full of truth. I’ve had a week like this and couldn’t stop because I had so much to get done before my surgery. But for the next four weeks I’ll get to take a break. I plan to do a lot of sitting in the garden.

    The swing has MY vote, Jone!
