Catching Time

Time lends nothing
sparse hours

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 . . .

Lending Time –

Autumn in North America (1856)

Impatient orange
seen before seasons go cold
captured in fine art
flaming meander
autumn’s storied reflection
time coming, afire

Afternoon Reminder

Daylight peaks; at once, yawns:

       "My point lost its beginning; time!
        Mind this alert"

   Perhaps the last chance  
    Get things done, before         . . .

      Day's duration dissipates       .
