Time On A Dare

.

I watch the second hand

then the moon to get them

synchronized. If an extra

second can be found

I want the fame.

.

Waiting wastes time best

used hunting rabbits

not to shoot or trap. 

.

Minutes are a whole different

entity. That requires a timer,

an abacus, a metronome,

and a sundial.

Time is so fleeting. As I get older it seems to go faster, until it petres out I suppose. Nice poem, just watching and counting time.

Dear Captured Thinking

Time is corrosive

it whitles a way

through wooden ideas

and rust is a near

cousin.

.

Age lines are mother

to smile lines and crinkled

laughter. Time is male

and female and neutral.

.

Most humbly, time

runs the hour glass, then

crosses the road

counting steps to

the other side.l
