Happy 1-Year-Blogosphere Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to me!

Well, it's been a whole year (and a day) since I launched this blog, and...
 I can't believe how quickly the time has flown!    

My original intent had been to "march forth" on March 4th, and...

I was late. 

As that seems to be the story of my life lately, it only makes sense that I should...
celebrate my 1st year anniversary late, as well.

In honor of the event, I'm posting an appropriate (time related) poem, 
and a link to my very first blog entry at "Wander, Ponder, Poems & Pix".  

Hope you enjoy wandering!

Passing Time
 
Grandfather stands sentry
at the foot of the stairs,
his comforting Westminster
chiming the quarter hours.
Anniversary clock in the hallway, running always a bit
behind, her sweet, clear Canterbury quartering off time.
Clock on the mantle rings a ding-dong doorbell tone she finds in-
trusive, sometimes – mostly during quiet, meditative moments.
Soft tripping Whittington, lazy, meandering Oxford,
Beethoven’s majestic 9th
become almost haunting
in the somber, sleepless
minutes after midnight.  She
sets them all to alternate. The goal:
to allow each its own short solo.
But their diverse tempos, and other
distractions, sometimes trample this meticulous
strategy. In those madly chiming moments, she concedes:
symphony or cacophony is mainly a matter of peace of mind
(or lack thereof).



And lastly, here's my link back to the beginning: Welcome! And what took you so long?
