An unravelling of time

Is a measure of existence
Where we all play our part
Looking back and looking forward
We live so much and imagine so much
Sketching life on our minds and our hearts
Sometimes we break 
And we think we are- Irreparable
But somehow -
We move through time 
Changing and shaping 
This way and that – from darkness to light
Shedding off the old 
Birthing the new into existence – we didn’t know was beyond-Times portals
Here we explore the supernatural world of promise- at the Kings command
We enjoy a Kingdom of priceless worth - it outshines times wrappings 
Time that is slowly unraveling
Being discarded on the pile -
Of a past life.

    Thank you- sorry to be so slow to respond to everyone's kind comments- but life for me is so busy being a grandma and actively looking after a 2 and a half year old so many times and many other situations- so sorry folk I am not on here more often- so I won't reply to all individually as I will never have time to read your poems and offer my voice to them. But I sure appreciate you all, love, brenda xxxxx

    A good, contemplative poem, Brenda -- a sweet and sour mix of a forlorn touch, brushing against hope.

    gosh, have I read your stuff before? The way you wrote this is very similar to my own style, on the few occasions i have done free verse. I hope to keep seeing you, Brenda. This was very nice.
