Naisaiku for Heads or Tails



Barb at Skittles Place, owner of Heads or Tails , offers this prompt: Tell how you think you or your life will be different in five years. Will it be better or worse? Why will it change?

In Five Years?

one-half a decade
swinging on a fragile string
future lays in wait
a yo-yo in a child's hand
future lays in wait
swinging on a fragile string
one-half a decade
