Take Time COLLABORATION – Happy New Year!


Happy New year beautiful people!

happy new year 2016

Well my friends, it is a New Year, and what a great way to begin our year with a collaboration.    For this one, we are using the anaphora –

                                                     Take Time

What I love about this open ended topic is that we can write endlessly from any point of our lives.  I can write a stream of consciousness without stopping.   No rules!       Add your lines in the comments, and I will put them together to make a group poem.  No deadline…write what makes your heart sing.   What ambitions, hopes, dreams, goals do you have for this bright beautiful year?   Will you make more memories with your loved ones?  savor time?   Take some chances or risks?



Here’s one of my contributions:


to be of the earth,

let it nourish you

soak its sweetness in your bones


Take time

To be of the water

Let it drop on your tongue

And quench your insatiable thirst


Take time

To gather around the fire

Let family and friends

Warm your heart and soul


Take time

to fill your lungs

breathe in mindfulness

Let out peace


Take time

To just be…



Namaste my friends,

and have a peaceful, joyous New Year.

  1. Hi Marie, a wonderful new year to you, love the group poem.
    ‘take time to be grateful
    take time for smiling’


  2. Melting Impressions

    When I pause
    and take my time
    to pay attention
    to those things presented
    to my mind
    I find
    as I grow older
    left out more often
    in moments colder
    fewer stand by me
    shoulder to shoulder.
    As numbness creeps
    from fingertips
    it seems at times as though
    I’ve lost my grip.
    Once precious memories
    begin to slip.
    Heartfelt refrains
    of Auld Lanng Syne
    each passing year a spirit
    a little more or less refined
    reaching, reaching for that
    touch of the Divine
    Glancing back at footsteps
    melting in the snow
    impressions not indelible,
    their value I do not know
    and I would have someone tell me,
    One who took the time
    to know
    before I go
    Despite my flaws
    that I tried
    not to lead or follow,
    but stand alongside
    I would like to believe
    I will be missed
    when it’s my time
    for my last sigh.
