Our Days


My days are many, yours are few.
We come into the world bright eyed.
You forgot time would slip by you.
My days are many, yours are few.
Your skies are grey, my skies shine blue.
Your light now flickers there inside.
My days are many, yours are few.
We come into the world bright eyed.

Response Triolet to Maya Angelou's Passing Time
for a poetry challenge contest. This is the first metered poem I have written.

Passing Time
Your skin like dawn
Mine like musk

One paints the beginning
of a certain end.

The other, the end of a
sure beginning.

by Maya Angelou
