Template of Time…

*

First thing on waking

We reach for the ‘alarm’

To check the time

And cannot recall

The last time that did not happen.

*

‘Time’ again but in a different sense.

We use the same word to designate

A succession of ‘living’ moments, a now…

And an event now… long ‘dead’.

If we want to ‘resurrect’ that event we call it ‘this’…

*

Worth contemplating?

  1. Last year, time declared itself to be my enemy, and already I can feel its hands around my neck. If I only make one resolution for 2019, it will be to cut myself free to use time to my best advantage and not be dictated as to how I should be using it…

  2. I have a strange relationship with time, I keep losing it which; they, those, learned doctors say is down to being dyspraxic. Getting so lost in a moment that normal senses don’t realize that an hour or two has passed. However, I also have a clock at my bedside, it isn’t wound, but it is beautiful to gaze on.

  3. Time is a strange thing it can be friend or foe. My sister often makes me smile as she refuses to conform to time saying it is only man made? Well I suppose in that she is right really. The thing is less stressed , never early or late in her eyes. I find travelling with her very stressful and shopping is pergatory! Bless her!
