Flipped Hourglass

At the appointed time (you know not when) your spirit will kiss this world goodbye. Sands of your earthly time will then have run their course. Folks will cry. Your progeny will be left behind, and words hopefully kind about you will be said. The hourglass at this time for you alone will have flipped. Dear ones will keep on their own path. With spirit eyes, you’ll view them from behind the veil where you will slip, knowing that the hourglass of those whom you so love will also soon be flipped. Feb. 6, 2022 For Edward Ibeh's Pick-A-Title, Vol 28 Poetry Contest Title 4: Flipped Hourglass in double etheree poetry form

Congratulations, Andrea, on your win. Life is short, life is not permanent - the topic of impermanence has been beautifully penned in "Etheree" form. Great work! Love and blessings ~ Mala
