Present To hold

Time always ticks away

Changing all things around
It pushes life forward till end
All just within a tick

Its time that forces a bud bloom
And a chick to hatch of an egg
As it does drag them back
For the flower to dry and chick to die

Its time that brings changes in
Its time that begins big great deals
For it does bring joy in us
As for hardest sadness too

So enjoy every tick of time
As every bit changes of fast
You can’t ever come to past
Till enjoy the changing present.

Hi Susan,
I especially liked the line -
"So enjoy every tick of time".
So important.
Great poem,

Hi Susan:)

You have made me sit up and think about the importance of time. Our success in life depends on the careful use of time. If we waste it in idleness, indolence and sloth we will suffer and we will not be able to achieve anything in this life.

Time and tide waits for no man.

Best wishes :)

Hi Femin Susan,

Thanks for your visit to It Strikes Me Funny. Your prose catches the imagination; we should not leave home without paper and pen.

Come back to see wooden bowls from red cedar.

Hi Susan, thanks for visiting my blog.

Interesting sentiment you write about, one we often take for granted. Thanks for a little reminder to enjoy the day and what we have.

How do you find the time to maintain so many blogs? I really like the cake blog you have too.

I would love to walk along that path! It looks like a good meditation path.
