Prompt from Poetic Bloomings: "Take an eye-catching line from one of the poems posted ahead of you at Poetic Bloomings, and use it as the title of a totally new poem. Be sure to credit the poet and poem it is from."
Worried sighs draw lines across your brow,
tears of stress caress your wearied face,
shouldered cares slow down your pace-
just stop! strike out those worries,
wipe off those clinging tears, slow down
and shrug away those shouldered cares-
raise your head up high and breathe,
enjoy the now while it is still today,
this too will pass away- so breathe.
"Breathe/enjoy the now" – from “Urgent Clocks” by Mary Mansfield
