The situation at the moment, how things stand.

Life’s…..

full of up’s and downs

somedays smiles

other times frowns

-

Joy and sadness

love and hate

questions often do

frustrate

-

Five days work

two of play

do enough to keep

the wolves away

-

Such is life………

At least someone's managed to say it... I think we all could use a break where we'd be able to breathe a bit more.

Thanks for commenting Jeff. All is well at the moment, inspiration is hard to find though. I wrote this piece then asked my son what he thought, he read it and said " life in a nutshell " I thought what a great title !

You tell it like it is Mister Watson! This makes me smile, for we're all in the same boat after all. Your poetry is always a joy to read. Thank you for sharing. :)

Thank you for those kind words Zany. Most of us are in the same boat,sometimes we have to row against the tide. Keeping hold of the paddles, that's the hardest part ! : )

Life, with all its ups and downs, all its trials and tribulations, and its certainties and uncertainties compressed into three poetic verses. Well done. Back to keeping the wolves away.

Its just that simple, it just is. well, maybe with beaches, clear waters, palm trees and drinks, but that wouldn't be our "life in a nutshell". Awesome work, Mr. Watson.

The only sand in my eyes is the stuff that I wipe off at five fifteen every morning during the working week. Most of us have to do and make do BlackMyst. ( Such Is Life ) Thanks for commenting, I hope all is well.

Take the dice and role them true then wait for life to do what life will do. ... Nice poem.
