Watching Time #poetry

Anticipation that sense of awaiting. As Christmas looms ever near, children wait expectantly for the day. As 2012 approaches, some smile with expectancy to a wonderful year ahead.

They wont move while you watch

my mind wills the hands around your face

tick tick I can’t wait

open the glass face and let me in

move now move quick

my life is in your perfect sphere

midnight… one… two… three…

dawn rises beautifully clear

as you pull me close to thee

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. “my mind wills the hands around your face” – perfection, Leslie. So many times I’ve tried to control time.

    Loved this poem of time and its inescapable rigidity.

    (Promise you won’t leave without staying in touch!)


  2. Oh, that gravitational ‘pull’: ‘As I’m pulled closer to thee…forever!’

    “TIME” is one of my favorite topics on which to bloviate–as if I really knew of what I’d be writing–grin!

    Nice to visit you, Leslie, and to note again that your blog is in capable, talented hands…YOU!



  3. I like your poem. I’ve written many poems and short stories with ‘Time’ as a central theme. After all – “The ticking of a clock is the sound of a hammer striking a coffin nail”

    Feel free to have a look at my writing site. I’d love some feedback.

    Merry Christmas.
