Drifting sands

Saxon Crow

Remember me yesterday

For today I am here now

And tomorrow that is yet to come

To you I am unknown

Like drifting sands

I never rest 

Or settle where I want 

I go where the currents 

Of time take me

Forever, on and on

    My comments on the poem “Drifting sands” by Saxon Crow

    You speak of the currents taking you along. See the poem “The brook” by Tennyson.
    “I chatter, chatter, as I flow
    To join the brimming river,
    For men may come and men may go,
    But I go on forever.”
    --Alfred Tennyson (1709-1892) : “The brook.”

    As a poet, you go on forever…

      Many thanks for your kind response Soman. I have just read The Brook. A lovely piece of poetry. It's shameful to admit but I very rarely read any poetry. Clearly my loss!

      May that journey never end and be filled with joy and love.

        The journey is the journey GF. And there's a line for a poem. See you tomorrow!

        Good write SC.
        It reminds me - I can never find 'tomorrow'. When it gets here, it's always 'today'. Doh! Strange that! lol.
        I can't say I know more than a smattering of Tennyson myself.

          It is a bit confusing isn't Orchi. What's ridiculous is that we try to measure it! I thought Tennyson was a type of saw

            Oh lol - tenon saw! 24 hours to a day. How did you spend that extra second we had a few years ago? Hope you didn't spend it all at once! heehee.
