A magic book
contains my story
changing yet complete
reads each page
sometimes skimming
to oblivion
I live the tale
illusion's protagonist
weaving drama
time limitless
reads on.
Submitted to One Shot Poetry. If you want to read some fantastic writing, visit the site. You'll enjoy.
Like me, I'm sure many of you are going through a period of reflection. A new year approaches and time accompanies our choices as we create our lives. I take this demarcation of time to establish many intentions and decisions. I hope they are all realized.
I hope you realize your dreams and may time be your friend. Happy New Year!!! Prospero Ano Nuevo!!!


  1. Myrna this is lovely "chaning yet complete...time reads each page"...indeed.

    wishing you a year filled with blessing, joy and sweet peace:)

  2. time reads each page - i like this!
    and i'm reflecting way too much - all through the year - sometimes living more inside than outside..and i don't like it.. but well - guess that's how it is... wishing you a wonderful start into the new year myrna with lots of poetry ahead :=)

  3. "illusion's protagonist / weaving drama..." We all write our own scripts, seemingly for both past & future. Our dreams may be the most fun to write, read, and realize. Like how you express these ideas poetically. Write and read one!

  4. a wonderful new year pondering the story complete yet still being written...i hope you continue to find your dreams as well...smiles

  5. I like the pervading tone of hope and vitality. I too like 'illusionist's protagonist.'

  6. Well, everyday for me is like the one you have mentioned but it becomes special on the last day of the year as it the mother of all reflections.

    I wish you joy always,

  7. Oh I just love this poem.

  8. Love this, very thought provoking as I too am finding myself searching new ideas and pathways before me as I enter this new year and new journey.

  9. Beautiful, I will have to check out this site!
    I look forwarding to getting to know you better in the New Year! I hope time is on your side, too~

  10. Beautiful, Myrna! I believe that 2011 will be THE year for many dreams to come true!

  11. Your poem made me pause with a sigh. Time is infinite yet precious.
    Wishing you a beautiful New Year.

  12. happy 2011.

  16. Happy New Year, dear Myrna. I'm so glad I know you and get to enjoy your beautiful take on life through gifted words.

  17. Hello, My name is Tammy. I am a 52 year old career Paramedic and Paramedic Instructor who was put out on Disability in 2009. I am also a poet and you can find my work at I live with my 22 year old son. We live in North Carolina. I write this in the hopes of getting help from kind, more fortunate people. I spent 20 years helping and teaching people as a Paramedic before I had to go out on Disability. I make $933.00 a month on Disability. My rent takes over half that. My electricity takes another $250.00. I make 'too much' to get Medicaid, so I have Medicare which still costs a lot for Doctor's visits and Medications....and I am on a lot. I am not eligible for food stamps because I make 'too much'. I have exhausted every avenue available to me and cannot find help anywhere. My son is desperately searching for a job, which is all we would need to make it, but has had no luck. No one is hiring. He has applied for work everywhere in our city, nearby cities, and online. It's just impossible in this economy to find a job.
    I am asking for ANY donations anyone could make. I am trying to get enough money to pay my rent up a few months in advance so that we can eat and get my medications until my son can find employment. Any amount that anyone can make would be a blessing and greatly appreciated!! I am not used to asking strangers for help, and this is very hard for me to do, but I am desperate. I have no family that can help me financially, my daughter is doing all she can to keep me on-line and connected to the outside world, and the Government will do nothing for me beyond my Disability check...which I worked very hard for all my life.

    Please, please help me if you can...any amount will help.

    Please mail any donation to:

    Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please pass this along to anyone that might want to help me...Thank you!

  18. Happy New Year Myrna! Your poem is beautiful.
