Adjusting to life's changes with hope… through poetry, haiku, and commentary

Click of Time


If I had a poem
I’d place it right here
in this empty space.

[place poem here]

But I don’t.

My thoughts are on
holiday taking a walk
along the beach on a
hot summer’s day with
the sea breaking over
my feet.

I blink and swallow
hard. There is desert
all around me.

If I had a poem
I’d place it right here
to tell you what you
long to know.

To tell you that
everything will be okay.
But it’s not. Because of
what I do not know.

One minute my feelings
are caught unawares;
sensations and thoughts
collide.

The next minute there are
no thoughts, no feelings;
just the click of time.

Then, I think.

If I had a poem
I’d place it right here
in this empty space.
