A LIFETIME of WAITING … who needs it?

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Swirling – March 25, 2021

By Eugenia

Stop Swirling Around like a whirlpool

Is life going too fast for you!

Is it any wonder why good stories begin with “Once upon a Time.”

A tip of slowing time if you think it’s going too fast. Watch the clock while anxious for it to reach the top of the hour to start your action. Or stand in the kitchen, not moving, waiting for the water to boil, suddenly it begins to swirl, bubble while swirling into a fury.

Time is life, don’t waste it. Stop the wait stop the fury! Stop allowing your mind to spin and swirl with hopes and desires that may never come your way. Instead, either relax and pray for that peace of soul, accept what blessings you have. In other words, Stop waiting for it to happen either make it happen or move on. Before you know it, life will end, and so will your waiting.

My husband, who passed away eight years ago, would often say. ” If you can do something, do it, or if you can’t do anything about it, don’t worry.”

“Pray and don’t worry,” a motto of Padre Pio. He, through an act of God, Padre Pio being blessed with stigmata, thereby provoking both interest and controversy as most miracles are often questioned. I have adopted his motto, “Pray and don’t worry,” my rule of life because it works!

Alouette Form Titled Our Time

dVerse is calling out its OLN day!  

Here is a poem I posted last October about the theme “Time.”

We all have it; what are we doing with it? The question.

I tried the Alouette form of Poetry.

Before I copy and paste my poem from a past post; I want to share something a wiser person mentioned to me just the other day. I never thought of this; perhaps you have. He said, God, Jesus, had to become a man like us, a man to suffer and die like us, in order to JUDGE our actions justly. I thought that was interesting, just wanted to share.

We live, yet we die
A gift of will; why?
The gift from whom? God our voice
He came — gave us time
Life — our turn to shine
Death He gives again our choice!
Helps us on our way
Expects us to pray
Asking for — claiming Wisdom
Angels there to guide
Always on our side
Calling all to His Kingdom

The Mystery of LIFE

Today, Monday, October 5, Eugi’s Weekly offers us an interesting PROMPT, designed to inspire! The word MYSTICAL, a creative writing is in order. Mine below is a form of poetry known as Haibun with Haiku. Click here to join

Mystical

“Time,” time is mystical in the sense of its meaning. What is TIME?
Past, Present, and Future three in one a trinity!
The past FINISHED
The present NOW
The future TO COME
Reminds me of another Trinty, Father, the Creator of all; past!
Son, the Redeemer of all, presently now on earth we know, love, and serve Him while the Holy Ghost guides us to Heaven’s future home. Indeed, this is mystical and a mystery of our Faith.

Our time now look, seek
Mystery of Truth to find
Mystical glaring

As Night meets Day, the Battle!

At midnight, we begin a new day, although dark as night always is.
Time continues to tick-tock, minutes pass, we sleep. Tossing and turning, we await Twilight— the battle approaches, Twilight —  the time that gets in the way of darkness. At last! Sunrise to announce the winner, Dawn!
All this unknown — we sleep! We dream while angels watch!

Peep, peep, sing, sing a little bird, have woken our sleepy eyes, and night has met a new day. Our sleepytime over when it is over said and done it was a time, and there was never enough of it. A new day what will it bring? I wonder!

Happiness is that first cup of coffee!

What IS, It IS WHAT IS, Elusive!

 

Time as we know it is WHAT IS, like the truth, it IS!
We wake up, wonder what the day will bring.

Are the days set in stone?

Each day a wonder, each day means something
different or ELUSIVE! (the word of the day)
Examples, A Friday to the secular “Finally Friday.”
A religious person might feel yes, finally, but also see it as
“Fervent Friday,” the day Our Lord died.
A secular; Saturday = Self Saturday, a religious-minded would think
more in line with Saintly Saturday, and a little about self.
Then there are Sunny Sunday vs. Sacred Sunday.
Mournful Monday, Moral Monday, Tired Tuesday, Trinity Tuesday
Wake up Wednesday compared to Worthy Wednesday; the news of the day brings us to Tittle Tattle Thursday,
to the religious person would desire a Truthful Thursday.
Oh, how the weeks fly and indeed are ELUSIVE!

Word Prompts

Time Change, not Climate Change

Did I really lose one precious hour of my time, if not where is it?

Suddenly it occurs to me!
I woke up telling myself, and it’s 4:00 a.m.; my clock says 5:00 a.m. therefore; I am missing one hour.
That hour! What could I have done with it? Continued with my fleeting dream, forgotten with that cup of coffee or sooner. Or perhaps I might have awoken earlier hearing my cat scratching at whatever! Doing what I usually do, hopefully praying a prayer or two.
Time is like that… once gone… gone forever!
Don’t waste it on remaining in the state of languishing day after day, month after month, and year after year.

The prompt word if you haven’t guessed is “occur” here!
