Catching Time

Time lends nothing
sparse hours
taken

chronologically
slim opportunity

fades to black/book
never thinking
must be

picked up, believed
seen or heard, at least

otherwise, only
oblivion awaits  
below obscurity

bigger than Time
immense opening


Catch some time, before time catches . . .

    1. “The older I get”, 🙂 I realize more how precious it is. Still, maximization of it eludes me. I “spend” it often on comfort over risk. But that’s a whole set of stories. I guess we do what we can for the most part, but it’s good to remind ourselves?
      Thank you💙
