A Scrap Of Time

Rating: 4.8

I need to find time-
a scrap of time
unnoticed
by the demands of everyday life
that chews up every morsel of time it can find.

I want to meditate on these stray birds of thought-
I want to know that my life
was more than washing dishes
and waiting for the phone to ring

bearing news of joy or sorrow.

I saw in your response to somebody's comment that you are absorbed in writing a series of novels! What? ? ? ? Have you already had a novel or more published? I would like to buy one. Available on Amazon?

A scrap of time… what a unique concept! A scrap here and a scrap there, and we could save up a whole bunch of time! Is this really the first poem you posted here? What a winner it turned out to be!

I find the poem reflective of a sadness in life of missed happiness by the author. I hope you find the comfort and joy you seek. Take care.

This poem wouldn't be as powerful had you listed more examples of life. Dishes and phone---bringing news of joy or sorrow---PERFECTION!
