a poem about time ..................................

In My Spare Time, I Waste Time.


 


With no time to spare,


I run my fingers


through the wisps


of my  remaining hair.


 


 I live a mural of cafe,


caffeine-misted


day dreams.


 


Thoughts that trickle


like a slow-moving


late summer stream.


 


I reason this is a suspension


of time.


Until I hear


the rude assertion


of a clicking clock's


chime.

There is nothing wrong with daydreaming, do it all the time. Such a delightful read. Enjoyed.

Be safe,
Karen
