Tick Tock

Tick tock

Tick tock

The clock ticks down

The minutes stop

Tick tock

Tick tock

The beast has risen

Death appears

Tick tock

Tick tock

Times up

To late for prayers

Places to See – FW prompt 37

So many places
So many people
So many things to see
And so little time
Decisions to make
No time to take
Take in what is around you
See what is behind
The mystery
Misty eyes
Filled with joy
Filled with tragedy
Make new friends
See old enemies
Tell the stories
Held within memories
Time is long
As it is short
Take what you have
and live

Time is fickle
ever changing
Never yielding
Yet always bending
Time to go
Time to stay
Too much to do
Not enough time in the day
Mundane chores
Wasting away
Time to work
Time to play
Staring at the clock
Waiting for time to speed by
Slowly ticking
Each second agony
Time to love
Time to let go
What will happen to me
Where will I go
Time to think
Ponder all I know
Time to say goodbye
My journey continuing

Never Enough Time

~ Image: We Heart It

Where does the time go?

We work

we play,

then suddenly days have past

without words being written

thoughts being expressed.

Too much to do

too little time to do it within.

I hope I’m not forgotten,

I hope my words are still true.

Winter falls into spring

and flowers bloom, 

weeds grow

and my time is pulled a different direction

leaving me with less than before.

Bear with me

as I find the time

to let my words

flow into rhyme

and prose.

I promise you

it will be well worth your time.

Starting a new job and spring arriving has cut into my writing time. It’s very frustrating, yet it is what life tends to be. I am working on edits for my next book Destiny. As of now it seems to be a very hard edit when I thought I had the book done! *sigh* So please don’t forget me as I try to adjust to my new time limitations. I am still here, still writing, still musing and I have not forgotten you. 🙂
Have a wonderful day!
