The escape of time

AS THE TIME TICKS AWAY ON THIS CLOCK.

I CANNOT HELP BUT THINK.

ALL THE SECONDS.

MINUTES.

THERE.

WASTED.

LIKE SAND BEING TOSSED.

WHAT ONCE WAS GRASPED SO FIRMLY INTO MY HAND.

IS NOW DISPERSED.

AND TURNED SO FAINTLY INTO THE SOFT BLUE SKY.

Doomed from the beginning

I imagined floating flower petals shifting in the mid-sky
A reminiscence of childhood; beings in love
There wasn’t much worry for us in the world at the time
No damaged conscience
No shame of being
Only the mere echoes of everything that could be
