Shift in Time...

Minutes beating, and
with the transcend of every second,
I see a time elapse,
not just with the,
oscillation of clock hour, but
time is running from our life,
galloping at a rapid pace,
flying without wings,
the notice might be minuscule,
at the moment,but
as years pass by,
siting back and recounting memoirs,
recalling the experiences of past,
can a bit of that while, be driven back..??
wish,that time could be held tight,
clenched in my fist right,
an apparent drift in time, haunts,
with a caution to brisk with,
experiments of the present,and
advancing with the tranquil time,
so, not to woe for overrunning moments,
in the prospective future,
as this tranquility once lost,
would not spin back,
the shift is difficult to sustain..!!!

I like all the referrals to time in this poem: minutes, seconds, clock, rapid, years, it is just chock full of them, which leaves the reader very aware of what it is about! Nice job!

It is indeed difficult to sustain. How we understand time and do not understand time. Such a mystery.

I'd like to believe the past and future are illusions, they don't exist, and so live in the present.

I believe time is an illusion, but without it we would know life. Thought provoking indeed!

The poem has brought out admirably that the march of time is inexorable and the moments lost are lost forever.Make the best while in the present is the message

I liked this very much. So many ideas all at once and we try as hard as we can to retain them. Wish it would work.
Excellent flow of words.

love, Melanie

the rush of ideas mimics the flow of time. "a caution to brisk with, experiments of the present" - masterfully written! a very human dilemma
