One Perspective of Time: i am A Poem

It's coming and going so quickly,

most of which I do not see.

Seconds to minutes to weeks to years,

lights and sounds...and energy.

The images of life were taught and learned,

to eyes too young to need

what was that thing I felt inside

a whooshing at the sound of speed?

Am I really here, do I really dream?

How do I mark this passing?

I come, I go, I spin around

and I got it just for asking.

It's time in part, and time is free.

I know there's more than flesh

I move, I sing, I am, I be

I'm bathed in gratefulness.

I know there's more to time on earth

It's something very bright

so I stand and wait and wait in line

For reflections of the light.

If I stand here long enough I think

I'll catch a glimpse to see,

If I stand here long enough I'll find

That part of time...that's me!

Thank you Ananceleste,

I am truly grateful that you read this piece. I don't do very much poetry because most times I think people won't understand my meaning.

Come back again,

Well done...and perfectly understandable. But like you, I seldom write poems. :) Great choice of pictures.
