A Blur

A Blur

It all goes so fast.
Things move, change, adapt, grow, stop, start – 
How, why, where, what, when – who knows?
Movement is all I can see.
All that I do know –
The only thing that I can say with certainty –
Is that it comes and it goes
Always in motion,
In a blur – life, passing by.
Never waiting for us to catch up.

Jill Elizabeth Arent Franclemont, a  former corporate attorney and government relations and health policy executive, walked away (well, skipped actually) from the big-city worlds of corporate and political America and headed for a more literary life (equally challenging, but infinitely more enjoyable).  Visit Jill at All Things Jill-Elizabeth and leave a comment about her poem below.
