Time




Time

Is time an organized file
brimming with figures and facts?

Or is time a play in the theater
with lines and scenes and acts?

Is time a glorified drum
beating the rhythm of life?

Or is time a well-honed blade
cutting through age like a scythe?

  1. The visuals and rhymes you've created are delightful--as always! Only you could make those words beat like a drum, resonating for others to appreciate.

  4. I'll take stanzas 2 and 3 please! Love how you're playing with poetry this month. Hoping to join in later. Still exhausted from the SOL challenge & working on a post for tomorrow's SJFT. Will join the play group on Friday!

  5. Time confounds me Mary Lee. How can my body feel the cuts of time, while who I am seems to stay more or less the same. I'm regularly surprised when I look in a mirror. Maybe time is a trickster?

  6. You know what Einstein said? “Time is relative.” I love what you did here. I will be using the metaphor dice soon.
