Best Poem of Valerie Lennox

Treading Water

Inexorably, minutes tick by
And time seeps slowly past
Like the trickle through the crack in the dam
Hardly noticed until
The level has dropped leaving a high water mark that no rainfall can reach

No storms can ever, no matter how wild
Fill the time, replenish the source
It is forever gone.

Hands once straight and strong
Grasp for a steadying hold
And gnarled and crooked fingers reach out
To touch, veined and wrinkled, and with a sigh
Retreat to clasp in withered unity, each other.

And rheumy eyes strain
To see the light as warm ...
