Tuesday’s Picture: Sometimes I Forget 

Multitasking and running on autopilot 

My mind gets stuck between gears

Up a snowy incline, down a slick road

Bubble gum sticking to my soles

Sometimes I lose track

Of the years that just passed

Muted in life’s frantic pace

With cold winds and shredded hearts

Moments of joy that race by like speeding trains

But when I take time to stay, to heel in quiet

I catch a glimpse of the palm trees and clear skies

A life with sandcastles and prisms of sunlight.
