Accelerated moon and steadfast sun,  

Swiftly encircle in succession,

While my arms, my feet, my heart, -

crawl idle in torpid procession;



I did blink in one course,

Yet another duration,

Each foot would then adjust,

I knelt down reaching one morning flower,

As it turned back into what's dust!



A flicker of time is what's given,

A notch in the stretch of the cord,

What you move in this life is what's present,

Before time closes it's final doors!

Michelle, I,ve never read a poem about 'Time' the way you've
written it. Awesome!
Reviewed by dan Rosenhagen
Very profound indeed. Time is the distance between two points and is measured by the speed at which we realize ourselves.

Your words are all that are timeless. Thank you Michelle for your wisdom.:)
Reviewed by Regis Auffray
Your poetry elicits much thought and reflection, Michelle. It is worthy of much more than a single reading. In the second stanza, I think you mean "each foot would then adjust." I have read this poem several times and it takes me into many "places" in my mind. Thank you for sharing. Love and best wishes to you,
