The Rhyme of Time


Ticking time

Is an alarming Rhyme

Tick tock! Tick Tock!

Goes the chiming clock


A pinch of sunshine

Will make the day mine

Immersed in birdsong

I shall trudge along

With nature's tellers of time

Time keepers so sublime

        A great thought with clever use of images and a different way to look at time. Well different no, only for modern times. Nature is the clock we ignore. Loved the peom and the image.

          Songbirds are nature's time-keepers, but are of course not a clock. Not mechanical and exacting. But incredibly honest, they never manipulate time like our bosses and doctors and grocery stores and TV channels. They adjust, go with the flow, but are always true. Ask Romeo and Juliet. If it's the lark, time to split!

            Yeah you're right songbirds are the best time-keepers😁

            there is always a way to connect with the rhythms of the world around us and find moments of peace and harmony.

              Absolutely right😁
