My Word of the Month poem

Hi everyone,

Here’s my Word of the Month poem inspired by TIMELESS.

Timeless Mystery

Some moments last forever in my mind,
Timeless memories that stitch my soul,
Shape the man by how they’ve been combined.

Unbidden, unexpectedly I find
Me, at six, probing a rabbit hole.
Why should this last forever in my mind?

Perhaps the curiosity was the kind
That led to science, nature, played a role
In shaping the man by how they’ve been combined,

And maybe not. Who knows what’s behind
Those timeless times that dig in like a mole
And somehow last forever in my mind?

Better, I think, to leave them undefined,
Appreciate them taken as a whole
For shaping the man by how they’ve been combined.

Still I marvel how they’ve intertwined.
Beyond my wit to exercise control,
Some moments last forever in my mind
And shape the man by how they’ve been combined.
