Blessing Ekpe

(7 may / Nigeria)

Need some time for yourself

Time heals and soothes the soul and skin

Time speak back when you talk to her.

No matter how close you may be to that person

Need some space for yourself to recharge and be refill

Time all alone, complete isolation

No intruder, No disturbances

To feel alone with time

To think alone with the freedom of time

You ought to know when, where and how?

Some privacy alone are worth than gold

Whatsoever you are looking for

Time alone, you shall find the answer

    Hugger-mugger, hush-hush! I am in humble supplication to the time. As said by the poet time is the healer, time is the coolers, time is the destiny maker. What not! The thrill and drama accompanied by music is my feeling while reads these sensational line of the phenomenal poem....................
    'You ought to know when, where and how?
    Some privacy alone are worth than gold
    Whatsoever you are looking for
    Time alone, you shall find the answer'

    I thoroughly appreciate the poetess for her selection of the theme of the poem and her word choice. Yes you told whole human philosophy in very few lines. With best wishes to the poet, I end it on happy-note.......Thanks for the poem and thanks for the poetess... (Report) Reply

    You sound so convincing...time alone...what a luxury it would be. I like the line 'Time speaks to you if you speak to her.' (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
