THE TIDES OF TIME

THE TIDES OF TIME

Willy nilly the aging process
Smooths and recycles the sharp edges of our life
And re-sorts our ill-fitting big troubles and small.
The ebb and flow of time -  irresistible,
Repetitive, constructive, destructive  -
Cleans the rubble-strewn
Patch of our life,
Rounds and makes regular each grain,
Filling in holes, combing each strand
To form a smoother pattern until
Seniority brings serenity
And the tempests of hot temper
Abate, to be replaced by better,
More clement elements.
Our older, smoother, rounded, sorted
Patch of firmament
Must needs fit more firmly
Into the cycle of life,
For the tides  of time wait for no man.

    That's poetic dear Sydney, great imagery and the sea is a favourite of mine. Alofas, Tiaua.

    Great! I like that line- seniority brings serenity. As I get older things do become clearer, for the tides of time wait for no man- you have some great lines and was a pleasure to read :)
