Senior Moment?

How is it that I

Can forget the objective

Before I get there?

Writer's Note:

No, I'm not a senior (not even close) so I don't have any excuse for this dilemma!

    I love this poem, again so many meanings can come out of it (being a senior being the very last one) . It begs the question of how we find our way as much how we lose our way sometimes :)

    Well I don;t know if I qualify as a senior or not, (61) but I do have lots of those moments when I get up to do something and completely forget why I got up. So I return to my couch potato position in hopes that whatever it was may or may not return. God Bless and thanks for your much appreciated comments. Ron

    This is just one outsiders thought as to what it might be that leaves you wondering what you forgot. If you're interested, read my piece titled Maybe You Should...What? Please know prior to reading that this is just my way of trying to be funny. No judements here. Best Wishes Always Donna. Bill Web address below.

    I chose to read this one because boy do I get the senior thing way too often but I cracked up when I read it. You're so nuts! From one that is much more senior than you don't ever stop laughing~

    Ahh, forgetting ! My forte! And now my inspiration for today. Thank you Donna.

    Hey, Donna, when you find the answer, please share it with me. Of course, you'll have to remind me again the next day. Great senryu! Love, Carolyn

    Donna thank you for your continued support. It really means much to me. This is an excellent senryu by the way. Keep being an inspiration...Raul

    I don't think you have to be old to have those senior moments, it just makes it easier to get away with it. ( Does being 61 mean you are a senior, I can't remember!) God Bless. Ron

    oh it's quite easy actually. I'm only 26 and I do this at least 4 times a week. You start with a real idea of what the objective is and then your mind drifts to the farthest reaches of memory lane. By the time you come out of it you'd be lucky even to remember where you are right now, never mind where you're going.

    LOL wonderful here, Donna. You've captured the phenomena brillantly ... smile ... I had to add it to my "favorites" list ...

  1. Date: 10/26/2009 5:04:00 AM

    LOL! Been there! I'm 46 and have had these moments on occaision and then I think "uh-oh" then laugh at myself! Perfect and creative Senyru, Donna! Love, Robin

    Don't have to be senior to have a senior citizen moment,Lol. I've had them all my life, Sincerely, Love, moses

    Written on a topic that affects many young and old. Sometimes in young people the reason is simply stress or maybe I should say distress. Too much to do in too short period of time. Thanks for your reading my work and commenting on it. Keep writing. Sara

    I think this is a situation that affects a lot of people, i can concur slightly with this >> nice shortie Donna >> James

    Wish I could help you out Donna but......I seem to be having a senior moment. Love, Carol

  1. Date: 10/20/2009 6:25:00 PM

    Oh yeah, Donna!... I can identify, and I AM a senior (or closing in rapidly) It doesn't happen to me all that much though (maybe only 10-20 times a day!) - Tim
