6 Minute Poem – Retired and Adrift

THIS WRITING CHALLENGE LIMITS US TO 6 MINUTES FOR CREATING PROSE OR A POEM IN REFERENCE TO THE PHOTO.

RETIRED AND ADRIFT

Of all the things I’ve lost,

I find myself misplaced and tossed.

The days and dates are fluid now

Adrift in time and space, but how?

Retired days are rows of clones,

A daily curse of aching bones.

I’m much confused but understand

The heavens are not human planned.

Although I waver ’bout my place,

I’ll wear no doubts upon my face.

    That dog looks a little inebriated! This is a masterful poem for six-minutes work. Really well done.

      Thank you! It’s a topic that I’m quite familiar with. LOL

        That always helps. I’m a long way from retirement age and adrift myself.

    Wow, that is a great poem. That only took 6 minutes? I am always in awe when I read someone’s poetry how they came up with words and ideas. I mean, maybe people think the same when they read mine. Thanks for participating!!

      It sometimes just comes out of nowhere. You’re most kind.
