*Image of Excitement Unlocked giphy by Escape Hunt. Time Life millstones pressures creation to sort through essential time, balms the albatross over seasonable means, paid in court. A past fraught in qualm, trading ourselves short, wills the clock face, hands smile--it sates the loss... life millstones pressures creation to sort, from the moment that stretches to distort, spoke present to a fresh reference, toss over seasonable means, paid in court. Seconds, minutes, hours ticking by, assort cleft role of abled spread twinklings as moss. Life millstones pressures creation to sort that infinite future's schedule, escort zealous flashes duly, that run across over seasonable means, paid in court. Shapes an hourglass, together, we support an eternal measured us, reach across. Life millstones pressures creation to sort over seasonable means, paid in court. 2020 June 30 *1st Place* A Brian Strand you choose ~~Brian Strand: Judged 2021 August 12 *1st Place* Time- 8 Word Challenge ~~Constance La France: Judged 2020 July 06

Sara, I appreciate your considerations, and I do agree that at times we draw blanks as oppose to when words fall into their rightful place, c'est la vie mon amie, Aloha!

Nice use of strong words to make the case of time as a tyrant, William. I especially liked albatross and millstone. I see you were careful to keep the 8 words out of your repeating lines. I made that mistake in my quatern and had to rewrite it because I had used the word 'time' 4 times! Big oops, and a lesson painfully learned. Congrats to you for your top finish and a great write about time ~ John
