Out of step with time..........

Maybe we just lost the timing to our own
march .........disillusioned
with some righteous sense of intent

Or we let the light of days fly past us as
waves from the very the sea
our precious life for rent

But the tides leave us only memories
crashing against our inner shores
....or unsures

Now I will dismantle this clock
and let the light and darkness
be the cure!

And maybe one day in pleasurable touch
the flesh of living will
will shimmer again

Until that time distant ....that illusive day
I feel my passions
stored within

Or was it just the living of time
itself that stole away my fire
leaving a scent of smoke

Starting right now ..........Live your life
not a moment to waste
not a word to time is spoke

The messenger of time......."Live
Live .....Live"

think of time and living as a deck of cards...

the two stacks are shuffled together and amongst them, your card lays...

eventually that "time" is up

when your card plays...

lovely thought process and message. voted UP, beautiful and interesting.

Live Live Live I concur. I like the way you let both light and dark enter. Without both we are not whole.

Loved it.

"Out of time" some may say

"Time out!" cries the disheartened

I say "One step at a time" ;)
