Poetry Wednesday - Time


Time

Time that fickle wave
Washing over us
Constantly changing flow
Creeping forward
Keeping awaited days
Just beyond our reach
Rushing forward
When we wish to savor
The Moment.

Tim that so fickle song
Doing the Minute Waltz
On decades of memories
Replaying a fleeting smile
In three part harmony
Launching us forward
Pushing us back
Today
Yesterday
Uptempo.

Time so fickle and so familiar
Haven't we been here before
I went to bed today
And awoke in yesterday
My love still alive
Beside me in bed
Forever gone
Lost in time
Come again

Oh so fickle time
Let's begin again
Once more with feeling
Just those moments 
I thought so unimportant
Forever etched
In instant replay
At the most ackward
Moments
Time moving against the flow.

Time oh fickle river
Moving us ever forward
Along life's river bed
Dancing on the surface
Eddies of memory
Backwaters of impatience
Don't leave me here
Adrift
In memories
Of shorelines past.

J. Binford-Bell, September 2010

  3. Immeasurable time
    Of boundless fathom,
    It is not yours or mine
    to tame with our reason!

    An interesting and philosophical freeverse poem with great analogy and metaphor.

    Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.
