POTD 20 Dec 2018
Like sand in an hour glass Time moves so fast A precious commodity Not meant to last Measured in hours Minutes unfold Time waits for no man So I’ve been told Facing my demons Refusing to stagnate or rust Releasing my fate to all that I trust I observe my negativity turn into dust Kookaburras laugh and the Magpies flute along to the strings of an imaginary lute In wild abandon my Spirit I bare the untamed wind blows my hair My bright yellow dress matches the Sun A New Phase has now begun
Footnote There is a time for hellos and time for goodbyes and I feel this is my time now to do just that. To all my poetic friends who have supported me on my poetic journey, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Keep writing your wonderful words, you have been an inspiration. I have made many good friendships here, ones that I will always value and appreciate. Let me take this opportunity to wish all my fellow poets on PS A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A BRIGHT AND WONDERFUL 2019 POTD 20 Dec 2018

Hi Maria. I have come to reread this poem (and several others) as I seek at least one of your poems which might have eluded me. So far no luck. ~ Take care and stay safe. Hugs // paul

You are so exceptional in your poetic verse. You are a true gift, my friend. Eloquent are lines from which you write, and artistry of such wonderous delight. I hope that you will still find time to share your heart with us from time and again. With best regards JC Hawkens

I believe I have found your poetry, a few times, and your thoughts have found their way to page as well. Even though I don't truly know you, my heart is saddened- knowing that you are leaving. Many wonderful blessings to you and yours. This holiday season and years to come. Be safe. Congratulations Maria, on Poem of the Day. ~ Brandy

It is with bittersweet emotions that I congratulate you, dearest Maria, for your well-deserved recognition with POTD honors for your beautiful poem.. for it is with a heavy heart that I read your footnote; your lovely presence, your inspiring friendship and your shining talent will be missed immensely. I wish you much success in all you do, but selfishly, I will hope for your return someday, my lovely friend. Your heart will always sing poetry! Warmest holiday wishes, dearest Maria.. ~Susan
