My Quiet Place

Passage of time

If time is Master; I’m the slave.
Each day I clean; I glean 
I make the clock tick and wonder
why it’s the same old scene.

I watch as the years slip away,
and swipe the seconds clean.
Then the sun sets and I cry for
memories I didn’t convene.

* poem written in my quiet place

    I appreciate your use of rhyme and the sentiment you are conveying; I think we all yearn for that "quiet place". I encourage you to write more rhyming poetry; as I looked through your portfolio, this was the only one marked as "rhyme". You have palpable talent; kudos to you!

    Wow, I love this. I wish it were longer! It leaves me wanting to know more about your thoughts and time.

    Sometimes Time seems such a waste - if only we could capture just one moment and glorify it. Take heart and concentrate on what is significant.... Congrats on your win, Vicky. Love, Suzette

    Nice Poem you've got. It's so relatable

    I can relate although my morning commute is by car. It's a frustrating experience, sitting in that rush hour traffic, hoping I don't get cut off again as I attempt to exit. My signaling seems to be the que to cut me off...ugh! You definately have talent. I think the world would be a more peaceful place if more people would find a creative outlet. Keep it up. xoxo
