All the Little Things That I Misplaced (POEM)

Updated: Nov 26, 2019

Here in this tower

There's a wilted weathered flower

Time is running out to recover


"Deer Me," acrylics on muslin, 2019.

The water in the vase

Has turned into malaise

My body as it fails becomes another


Things are getting stranger

It's clear that I'm in danger

And I cannot recognize my own face


A puzzle still in pieces

Tucked inside the creases

Of all the little things that I misplaced


Time is running empty

It twisted and it bent me

I try to straighten out but I'm undone


I climb down from the tower

If it all lasts just an hour

Don't look behind

There isn't time

Just run

Chetneet, your web page isn't looking right on my computer. The header is getting cut off on each side so your full menu isn't showing. I think it's because you're using the wide layout in Wix. Please write to me at maryannfarley118@gmail.com and I'll send you a screen shot.

Chetneet, I'm much older than you with some health issues, so time can be very prominent in my mind sometimes. But you're absolutely right in your interpretation. No matter what our age or state of health, looking back or having regrets can sometimes be a waste of our precious energy. I so look foward to watching how your own work progresses!

Amazing art!

While improving yourself, you should not have time to look back. Thanks for reminder!
