Sunday Scribblings: Better Late Than Never

Pop!
In a second
Everything changes
And nothing is the same
Pop!
A tornado swooshes through
Splits the town in two
And nothing is the same
Pop!
An accident touches sweet lives
Comfort tumbles down steep stairs
And nothing is the same
Pop!
Decisions made in haste
Deep scars cannot erase
And nothing is the same
Pop!
A prayer is offered
(It only takes a second)
And nothing is the same

Laurie, like your timely thoughts on these things that happen--in an instant, everything is changed.

I love the contrast of 'pop!' like a children's balloon but the world is crashing down..very clever device to 'wake us up' and hear the words..Jae

You've got it right there Laurie!
There is a strange affiliation between yours, and mine.
Thanks for visiting, by the way.

I am glad you included a timely prayer in your work. We pop into this world and pop out, let's be thankful for what we have in between.
