Time Enough


Time Enough

Perpetual and continuous
time is infinite and everlasting
fractal chambers unfolding
the logarithmic spiral uninterrupted.

Boundless, unbroken and unabating
slaves to the grind we feel it’s passing
ceaseless and incessant.

One day, your time runs out
tick follows tock follows tick
persistent and everlasting
time continues.

There’s never enough
just enough to count.

  1. Numbers of counting..
    hands of clocks
    waving around
    tick tock
    a never ending
    clue is noWiN
    Circle.. hands
    stop.. Circles
    live on..
    iN never
    ending NOW..
    inside.. outside..
    above.. so below
    all around circle
    of clocks without
    iN tick tock..:)

  2. So true …. Tick follows tick…if only we stopped counting and just being. I find I panic if I’ve been writing and I look at the time and surprised it’s 4am. But that just means I enjoyed myself. Thanks for visiting my blog today 🙂

  3. Loved it Bekkie, makes one think. I liked the ““…tick follows tock follows tick…” being perpetual. We do have a perpetual clock (German) but the others either need winding or battery changes. The engineer and science part of me rebels here a bit, but I still like the thought. There are people who spend their lives trying to discover a means of perpetual motion.

    1. That’s the thing about poetry Jim, it stretches boundaries in every way. I too was an engineering technician in my time and can understand your point but that’s why I love writing and fantasy.


  4. “…tick follows tock follows tick…” Especially love this line. Also really like the animated photo??? that you’ve included here….it gives “sense” to the poem. Time marches on……..such a simple and overused statement but in those words, there is so much mystery.
    We’ve had two medical “miracles” in our family — and when things like that happen, it makes you look at the world in a different way…..more closely….more intimately. I find that writing poetry makes me do that also. Consider a word, a place, a phrase, a scene. As I’ve said so many times since October 2013, thankful for every day. Thank you for this post —

    1. I am so pleased to hear about your miracles Lillian. Things like that really do dial in the details. You must feel blessed. I’m happy you stopped by to tell me about it and glad you enjoyed my poem.
