Time Passages #poetry

warm dawn

*

Time…

moves as the sun

a round face with hands

twenty-four hours marked

if we are old we sit

the young they stand

heart beat quickly ticking

signaling minute movements

like a baby’s yawn

early before dawn

colors broaden

light behind them

 day is on time

 ebbs the flow of the tide

time

waits for no one

it continues on schedule

you cant catch it

it’s too fast

blink your eyes it’s past

sun rises sun falls

the chest slowly ascends

with the last breath

hands are at rest

Santa Barbara bay

But what minutes! Count them by sensation, and not by calendars, and each moment is a day. ~Benjamin Disraeli

The prompt at Poet’s United today is Time. What does “Time” mean to you?

pumpkins

longing for someone
I sit by the gate and draw
eyebrows on a melon

feeling alone
lost in the woods around Edo –
just the autumn wind

 Lost in the crowd

leaning against a pumpkin

making faces

*

Fall sun rises

eyes gaze at nothing there

cold mornings and nights

like satin

Dawn rises

blue fire in your eyes

warmth of spring

brushes against your skin

Sun sets

golden-red burnishing your heart

cooled only by love

the heart to hold within
