Time - Poem by Valerie Dohren

Bang …..

Tick, tock, tick tock,


days pass

seasons turn

portions of existence

into eternity

    How very short and simple! Just as time flies by, you
    captured it right here in these words! Isn't it funny how
    when we are young, time seems to take forever, yet as
    we age it just flies by! In the blink of an eye! Loved this!

    The meaning of life summed up in a short poem Hawkins wrote a huge book and the majority of us still are none the wiser! BANG, tick tock, seasons turn, eternity, and that's it. Brilliant Val. (Report) Reply

    That's the only thing we cannot stop, time. It comes and it goes, it goes.

    Crikey Val! the entire cosmology of the universe from Big Bang to 'heat death' in twenty words.
    I'm very impressed.

    A great poem, time passes and there is no going back.
    Only the seasons come back.

    Life is giving a portion of time to everyone as the cycle of life continues.
    Powerful with great impact!
