Nature’s disbursement, copper
pennies (ticking time bombs) tap
out her allotment hour by
hour. Rich or poor, sinner or
saint, all receive one thousand,
four hundred and forty. Hers
used to slip through her fingers
like water, burning a hole
in her pocket on Pay Day.
But when her economy
collapsed, she diversified
her portfolio, making
investments in her children,
marriage, self – a penny saved
is a penny worth spending
on a day such as this one.
It’s a bit scary in some ways to think of an allotment of time but, then, it is also an incentive to make the most of it and expand it in different ways. Lovely.
Thank you Gallivanta! I need many reminders to spend mine well – today’s agenda includes a nap on a garden bench on what may be one of the last lovely days of the season…
WOW. Love the photo, especially.
Thanks! It’s a real beauty – a ‘late bloomer’, almost finished now, but worth the wait.
There are many kinds of investments and they are not all equal. Nicely done.
Thanks Lyle! Here’s to making a good investment photographic-wise! I might just get a point and shot for now and wait for what I want – I’m thinking a Canon Rebel. Tomorrow my daughter needs to have her wisdom teeth out so it won’t be much of a leisurely shopping trip – and I really REALLY need something to at least tide me over. Time will be tight, so knowing what I’m looking for will help a lot.
Hope that works out for both of you.
Pennies from heaven… heavenly tithing, don’t you think?
There you go again! 🙂 A poem in the making, don’t you think?
Melody ~honestly you are reading poetry in nature so, everything seems to be a stanza, its certainly not me but you dear!
