A Gesture Against Time.

Time is always with us.

In enjoying life, time flies.

In sad times, time drags.

When we look back

The times that we had

Were always good,

And as we look at them

We let them dwell with us,

As a gesture against time.

    A fine write and clip Gold. Oooh yes, we've had some times - from 1066 and before?!

      Thanks Orchi, it was great to be able to see Gallifrey in real time.

    • Michael Edwards

      You were not alone Andy - enjoyed the write.

        Thank you Michael, not once did I hide behind the settee!

        So right. I have found that writing pieces about my past 'highs' really does enable me to rejoin the emotion and joy of those times when i re-read them.
        Time seems to be our master.

        Thanks ANDY ~ Great tribute to one of the Worlds greatest SCI-FI series ! I was born 20 years after its launch but I have watched them all and still do ! I'm still scared of DARLEKS and the concept that future INVADERS (like V2's) may be ROBOTS ! For me TEMPUS always FUGIT and @ 35 I never have enough time ~ I would love to be retired and devote myself "full time" to Art ~ Music ~ Poetry ! Yours BRIAN I have corrected comment about SENRYU ~ OK
