Time passes.


Life and Times, Lifetimes

 

The millstone grinds on

Wearing away the essence

Of brightness to dust.

 

Individual

Soul of a child born to us

Changed by time and need.

 

A kernel of self

What’s left to ignite later

The ashes still burn.

 

Each generation

Frames time forward as they should

Connecting now / then.

Yes the last stanza ties all together, although, my generation are seeing then, a few nows, and the generation taking the relay pin of the future.
Time, so short, and yet, going tick-tack for one eternity.
