Watching Time Stand Still

Oh, time quick slips away, the sublime and the gay. Each click of life's dark clock, each brick and heavy rock. I build a fortress wall, so filled with thoughts that fall. Some should and wished I'd done, some would- or just begun. ________________________ June 30, 2020 Poetry/Verse/Thoughts Copyright Protected, ID 20-1264-181-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for the contest Verses In Essence sponsor, Joseph May Third Place

Stan, thanks for visiting and the comment, yes time is a funny thing, goes so fast when you are late for the bus but so slow when you are waiting for the water to boil for a cup of tea _Constance

bricks and heavy rocks....are things that are overstocked....but just think if we use our minds....retribution would be so easy to find....but, instead, we act out on impulse....and through it all, too many get engulfed....very insightful adh....;)

Love this D.H Dark matter is the counting clock Heavy is the rock it is built on And the black hole Is everything the last verses encapsulates
