Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 35 – PAST & FUTURE

Jennifer-Aniston-I-want-to-look-at-you-and-not-feel-so-hurt-by-you

you
follow
me till end
forget the past
the future is in our hands together
we have to explore and experience life
over here and
over there
let’s go
on

the past is the past
we have the future together
till death do us part

tenor

Let go of your weaknesses, we all have them.

Let go of the problem, it will be dealt with one way or another.

Let go of what you’re afraid of, it’s by facing it head on that you’ll prevail.

Let go of the frustration, especially on the things we have no control.

Let go of the competition with others, just try your best.

Let go of the past, they will never come back. Accept. Concentrate on the now and the future.

What was right for you then is not necessarily right for you now. Sometimes the hardest part isn’t letting go but rather realising that you have changed, and then learning to start over with your new truth.

Let go and move on.

Fun at the beach

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Louise with The Storyteller’s Abode. Thank you Louise!

shine, sunshine, shine as we wonder
we do not get tired of singing
along the beach, also running

in a stilted manner, we stir
message in a bottle or so
some flimsy swimsuit on the show

trace our footsteps like an ambler
one of the best trips we have had
having tea at three we are glad

some boats floating with their anchor
children play and run in a line
this is better than wine and dine

watch the waves in the sea azure
on such a fine day together
wish to stay the same as we were*

* The Constanza, created by Connie Marcum Wong, consists of five or more 3-line stanzas. Each line has a set meter of eight syllables. The first lines of all the stanzas can be read successively as an independent poem, with the rest of the poem weaved in to express a deeper meaning. The first lines convey a theme written in monorhyme, while the second and third lines of each stanza rhyme together.

Rhyme scheme: a/b/b, a/c/c, a/d/d, a/e/e, a/f/f………etc.

Sunday in Ostpark

Hello everyone! We cycled to Ostpark yesterday and spent the morning by the lake, drinking beer, eating ice-cream, looking at the ducks and swans and just enjoying a lovely day.

This week we are celebrating the first wedding anniversary of HRH the son and his beautiful K. They are now in Barcelona and last night they watched the game at Camp Nou. FC Barcelona won, yay! Best wishes to the couple and many more years to share together. We love you.
