thoughts on time

dusk arising



time is a measure
lovers use to pleasure
time is a tool
creates sage from fool
time is aloof
thief of  our youth
time is tight - so it's said
but time has a magic
faced with the tragic
time puts heartache to bed
time to show the bleeding heart of a poet
time to publish...  let the world know it
time to comment
on fellow writers lament
time to relate
the path of our fate
time to sleep
into our life of dreams
casting off we bathe
in fantasies streams
time to wake
fresh for the day
time will control us
seems to work that way
time on a wrist, time on a face
time even goes backwards
for travellers in space
time to live, time to die
time for the question perpetually 'why'
time has come to ask once again
will we ever see
time of peace to all men

    Time, what a thing. Time is everything and yet they say time is an illusion. I believe time is flexible and changes according to your perception of it. It is magical because the more you need it the less you seems to have but when you have plenty it seems that you are stuck with it. You wrote about time in a wonderful way, again you got your inspiration to the top. Thanks for sharing.

      Yes, i think you're right about the first line Malu, whet the readers appetite. Time is a strange commodity indeed. I only scraped the surface. Thank you for your comments and appreciation lovely lady.

      Wise thoughts on time and its place in our lives.

        I dont know if there's wisdom there Fay but time interferes in all out lives so we all 'get it' i guess. Thank you for your comments.

        Great poem, great rhyming, and I especially like the ending.

          Thanks Fred, the ending was my favourite bit too, i could have a rest when i'd done that bit.

          I absolutely love this poem. Beautiful rhymes! I wonder too if we will ever see a time of peace to all men. Great job!

            I doubt it, we're to busy at inventing devices to kill more people per hit or planning 'dirty bombs'. I'm pleased to read you liked it, thank you for you kind comments.

                Time to heal, time to reflect, time to grow, time to move along. Time is forgiving. Thank you for reading and commenting sir.

                Keep writing like this my friend and we will. Sadly this is all in our own hand, just have to stay strong And stick with the plan to create peace in man.

                  Like you have said in your writings..... the more we write about it the closer we get to it.

                        Time to show the bleeding heart of a poet,
                        Great line. time will tell , our lives revealed,I fear like u the world has more time than love, maybe with enough time the bleeding hearts can change the world but time WILL tell. Until then keep writing poet , great read my frnd
