What is Time?

What is time?

Do we need time?

Time for what?

Time to work?

Time to play?

Time to love?

Time to hate?

Time to write?

Time to paint?

Time to create?

Time on our hands.


That never-ending

Line of moments,

Moments in our life.

Each moment different,

Each moment wonderful,

Time is moments,

Time is wonderful.

    A fine time for this write G/F. Meanwhile - a long as there's time for me sherries and porkies, no other time matters! heehee.

    • Goldfinch60

      But hopefully no time to put water in my scotch. Thanks Orchi.

            A bit of French there Brian? Tempus Wotsit and Carpe Diem? Is that a type of fish? (Carp). Say that again in English?!

          • Kat

            Nicely done and timely!!

            • Goldfinch60

              Thanks Kat, much appreciated.

            • Michael Edwards

              I don't mind a bit of water in my scotch but only water and nothing else - will find time for one before lunch.

            • Mugsdaddy

              I am so glad I had time to read just in time to appreciate it in a timely fashion. So thanks for this time, until the next time... Oh I'm out of time.

            • Goldfinch60

              May there be more for your enjoyment of life. Thank you MD

              Cooee, I forgot to fill up the syphon with water. Pssst! Do you hear that pesky whisky-waterer?!

            • WL Schuett

              Time is wonderful as is this poem

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you WL, so kind.

              • Louis Gibbs

                So glad you find time to share your poetry, Goldie! Always enjoyable.

                • Goldfinch60

                  Thank you Louis, my pleasure.

                • Santita

                  I quiet like this, Goldie. Time is moments that are never-ending. I was intrigued by your thoughts of time/life, as I am still learning much about both myself. Thank you for sharing this, I appreciate it!

                  • Goldfinch60

                    Thank you Santita, time is a never ending paradox.

                  • FredPeyer

                    Goldfinch, I think the lines 'Time, that never-ending line of moments' must be one of the best descriptions of time I ever read. Great poem!

                    • Goldfinch60

                      Thank you Fred, much appreciated.

                    • myself and me

                      I got lost in your time, and forgot my time.

                      • Goldfinch60

                        Time is so easy to get lost in M and M. Thank you.

                      • Simple-Man87

                        I love "time is moments."

                        I really enjoyed this one. Thank you for sharing.

                        • Goldfinch60

                          Thank you SM much appreciated.

                        • dusk arising

                          If i only had time

                          to learn my five times table

                          a timely reminder

                          Once upon a time a gal called Rosemary (who couldn't spell) married time.....

                          nice writing sir

                          • Goldfinch60

                            Thanks DA, much appreciated.

                            What a write! Glad I found time to read it; thoroughly enjoyed yours. A refreshing perspective on time. And the coincidence did not escape me. Only yesterday I uploaded my own poem on time with a different take "Friendly Tyrant". You may wish to compare notes.

                            • Goldfinch60

                              Thank you Seek, time is a paradox.
