Kicking Around Time

Folder: 
Vintage Words


Stop, pause, try to wait. Why?

Did life get longer while I was

inside making a survey of the

internal mindscape

that shifts and torments

and sends pictures through

the hands?

 

No, you get so many hours

and so many days, really short

years that evolve into even

shorter decades.

 

I waste time looking

at flowers as if my eyes

could time lapse them

open.

 

I kill time, short time it,

pass time, count it, lose it,

rename it history but, oh yes,

I can stop, pause, and make

it decelerate time's flight, but

no one is the man or woman

for whom time waits.

 Time is the measure of

 Time is the measure of expansion of our universe. Since we have nothing to compare it to, we can only perceive it subjectively and individually. Myself, I don't feel time spent looking at flowers is wasted. One must free oneself from the tyranny of passing time, if only for brief moments.

I love everything about this poem Lady A! And the older I've gotten, the less rigid time has become ;-) 

Crazy crutches swing

around the face of our lives;

crutches that we clutch.

I very much see time that way

I very much see time that way and I love the title! Kicking out the crutches it can mean so few things ina few ways. One of a nasty passer by kicking out the crutches of a heavily bandaged mummy, or my fave way a kick up the old proverbial but to get up and be there for yourself develop super powers and time lapse flowers! What an awesome thing to try indeed! ;)

Time and Titles

Both should be fun and accurate, if possible, SSmoothie.

More Time Dared Not

I watch the second hand

then the moon to get them

synchronized. If an extra

second can be found

the fame.

Waiting wastes time useful

looking hunting rabbits

not to shoot or trap. Well,

maybe to trap between

a line or two.
