"The Hour Glass of Time"

Updated on February 9, 2018

Here is a small collection of short poems I put together inspired by Randy Behavior's poem "Hour Glass" and in the lovely writing style of Nelliana H. Hay. Hope you like.

The hour glass is almost empty.
       Time is running out.
But, if I just merely flip it over,
       Won't it just start all over again?


 

Grains of sand,
Falling.
Time.

The hour glass,
Nothing left.
Goodbye.

The grains of sand are falling,
not slowly at all.
My, how time flies by,
even when you're not having fun.
Soon the hour glass will stop.
Soon the hour will come,
when there's nothing left to do,
but to say, "Goodbye."     

                                

A grain.
A glass.
An hour.
A second.
How long will it take
to win your heart?


               ~~~

Some look at the glass as 
     half empty.
         Some look at the glass as 
         half full.
     Does it really make a  
difference?


               ~~~

      This is almost spooky - I have had a hub with an hourglass theme perking in my mind for days. What is it they say? GMTA - great minds think alike! Spooky.

      But yours is so good, I am glad I didn't' venture on with my idea. I didn't because it didn't come together. Yours did! :-) I really like what you've done with yours! Your illustrations are outstanding!
