A few of my 575 favorite things…

Football reminds me
Of summer-dreaming giraffes
Soya milk mornings

Sweet-salty popcorn
Subtitled foreign movies
The best afternoons

Babys and Sharpies
Elephants from Bangalore
Spotified evenings

Time slows down
Keeping time with me
Pacing with every breath
A silent hereafter, in orbit
On repeat
What is yet to come

Time speeds up
Keeping time with us
Every second that’s precious
Every minute, divine
Grasping on hours, insistent
We’re chasing days and sunbeams
Holding on to the months and moonbeams
Embracing the years sublime

Time is all I have
And it’s all I’m sharing
The very best of me
In every day of my life
Spent with you

Time is all we have
And it’s all we’ll ever need
All the time in the world
Distilled in a single moment
Our time
Our now

The Prompt: A Bend in Time

When you’re giddy with excitement, does time speed up? Slow down? Tell us about the experience of anticipation.Photographers, artists, poets: show us WAITING.

Woohoo for The Daily Prompt! Bookmarked and ready for more.

Where have all the poems gone?

Perhaps to a place that despair forgot

A place where angst was brought to naught

Where time has dulled the pain

Of the now blissfully happy, insane

Where have all the poems gone?

Perhaps to a place far away from here

Only in the silence will I hear

As I breathe, the words will flow

And the verses need not go
