I write what I feel…

And Time


Post No. 854


And Time


And time can be so misunderstood

Whether flying by in the blink of an eye

Or dragging slowly, stretching, extending

Seemingly depending on one’s view

And thyme is of the essence too

Stuffing in a fowl never smelled as good —

The aroma beckoning our hunger pangs

We walk life’s path hand-in-hand with time

Alongside us and our shadow lags behind

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Ha . I like your use of thyme and the smell of time . We only get a little bit of it. We have to use it as we can. Work with it walking hand in hand cause fighting it definitively does not work.


  2. Hmm, I agree. I see Time as a perhaps the human part, or view, of Eternity, ie because we are so small we reduce Eternity to Time/s. Thanks for your comments x. I really appreciate the Time you spend reading.
