Taking Time

Written by: Donald Meikle

The twisted tunnels and funnels of time
fend with the arcing arrows of truth
As gravity and comedy compete for attention
In a one way foray of racing life
As some hang and lean above speeding wakes
screaming with the absolute joy of it
others lay back and watch the ever-changing clouds
looking back at what might have been
That never can be
influences of how
In the nuances of now
Sails billow as lines are re adjusted
To shade the setting sun
And I find a tiller to lean on
