The collision of days of weeks of years.....

April spreads her wings and covers me
with the shadows of spring
Yet march winds refuse to turn
away from me for anything

Time is eternal ........ closing my eye's
in this silent house
I invision my internal calender a close
friend ......a silent spouse

And what does may hold in store
for the man of any season
But to hurry the year along ........in
spite of patience of reason

But time ...time hurrys away attending
to no man ...nor womans wish
As I remember once we were friends .........
now it's down to this

The wind wistles at the corner of
my old barn ...all through the night
But I bear her no ill wishes
she'll be gone by day light

And of tomorrow and tomorrow ......someone
once said in a poetic mood
Time though .....she cares not ......we
devour it like a favorite food

A deep breath and now another I find
my peace before light begins
God forgive me my impatience
for time always wins

Time is on no one's side. Very expressive. I never seem to find enough time for everything and there have been moments I've just wanted to and wanted to hold on to.

Your hub has been stolen and posted here:

Cindy Murdoch found this site and about 90% of their posts are stolen from HP writers (photos and all). We all need to search for our work and then contact the company and HP. They don’t even bother to change the titles so it’s very easy to do a search. Please pass this alone and if anyone has an idea of how we can get this stopped, please contact me.

Time...try as we might, we're all governed by it. We see the seasons come and go, and we are known even to wish it to hurry, but Time passes at it's own pace. This is a very beautiful and haunting piece, ahorseback.

ImKarn I missed your comment somehow! But I always look forward to your comments too! Thank you a million times for spreading my words. My FB page is inactive , I have basicly stopped using it! This HP stuff is pretty much it although who wouldn't love to be published . Thank you for being here ! It means a lot!
