Muse guided...

tick tock

tick tock

tick tock



bares the seconds of our lives as on we plod

bares the minutes of our sins in a false facade

bares the hours of our transgressions to God



waits gives no extra seconds to no man to spare

waits an angry minute for the end of all that is not there

waits diluted hours as Armageddon cries out in despair



in mere seconds steals the youth from your soul

in minutes dark  deters you from your goal

in hours bleak  digs you deeper a bottomless hole


tick tock

hear it talk

better heed

ticking clock

The most easily wasted and yet to be prized most highly. Sadly, we tend to use and abuse it as if, like life itself, it were in endless supply, but the truth is, I think, that time travels on a stright line from beginning to end and not in circles, round and round. We would do well to take stock and appreciate just how far along this line we may have travelled... both as individuals and corporately. The face of a clock stares in some shape or form ALWAYS into ours at every twist and turn... it's silence belies it's utmost importance as it gestures its hands in helpless appeal... Guaranteed to bring the most poignant out of each of us, this write hits home and resonates against nerves at the core of our deepest being. Great write, Felix! Bang on time! LOL Kate xx

time is fleeting but we are conjoined to its pulse ... have to say, this is a timely write ...
Reviewed by Susan de Vegter 8/3/2006
Time is a factor in the past, present and future. We lose it, live it and approach it...always. It is where we put values ...if we're wise. Is it time? It's approaching but is it too late?

Time...fluctuates and we are our own pawns. You are a wise man Fee...very wise in your thoughts, focus and values.

This is timed to perfection Felix, though I fear time is running out for all of us earlier than expected.

The person who has just been told they have 6 months to live sees an eternity pass in that time.

A beautiful timeless write about the precious time we so often take for granted.
Love, B&R

Contemplated much on this one Fee. Exceedingly pertinent words ...someone once said to me people abuse time because it is always there, they take it for granted and are then left wishing for more. Acknowledge its existence and then it can be used wisely. I think your poem encapsulates that perfectly. Lovely work. Love Panda :)
