Gossamer Wings

Source
Source

Time flies on gossamer wings,
delicate and fragile, indeed.
On wings it soars like a passionate dove,
yields not to pause, chance or greed.

Time is a gift of most precious design.
If squandered, will wither and die.
Wisdom dictates it be handled with care,
for once spent, it can not again fly.

Time wasted in fruitless pursuits,
chasing what was or could be
denies the gift that we hold in our hand
the only true gift we can see.

All that we're given lives in the now,
this moment is all that we get.
When handled with passion, with love, and with joy,
its memories embrace no regret.

Yes, time flies on gossamer wings
delicate and fragile, its seed.
On wings it soars like a passionate dove,
yields not to pause, chance or greed.

....well this is my favorite of your new poetic creations. In fact I had to go away (literally) and then come back to your page - so I could read it again!

Truly you can weave magic ever so sweetly with these words ....... and as if you were waving a magic wand too because it flows so effortlessly ......

Kim Lynn, and your words sing through my heart! Thanks so much!

Epi, it is one of my favorites too, and so many times, the words that flow through my pen are specific messages to me...words and lessons I need to hear first, and then share...thank you for listening too.
