Your Time (poem)

Here is your time this moment meant for you

To touch the world and show it who you are

A peaceful scent perhaps a shooting star

A destiny now opens to your view

-

Yours is the voice heard calling from afar

A whispered sigh perhaps a windswept coup

I’m here oh world now watch what I can do

It’s time to bring your fashion to bazaar

-

And days to minutes join the passing stream

To hide in caverns shaded from the sun

-

A misty shadow comes to claim this dream

And though you fight you know it has begun

-

As you awake to world with strange new gleam

Here is your time enjoy what you have done

This is an interesting poem. When you awake...it makes me feel like you are stronger, that is good. Loved it. Had to vote up.

I'm not much on poetry; in fact, I only read the poetry of maybe five hubbers on a regular basis. Note: I read yours. That should tell you how I feel about your work.

This reminds me of days of old, when handmade colors adorn the walls of caves. We can still smell the smoke from the cooking fires, and a few bones are still left as remnants in the sandy soil. Bravo! Voted awesome and up!
