Somewhere near the Rainbow

0 posted 2000-06-24 04:30 PM


Traveling through fallen dusk
as if ears of corn the years we husk.
Strings of ideas danced with time
while the old brass church bell chimed.
Close within the lurking future
facial wrinkles begin to mature,
yet far away from recent past
youthful complexions fading fast.

Holding tightly onto the reins
not enough time
to be embedded with pains.
Wildly hoping for a slower pace
would much rather be
relaxing someplace.

Clock ticking away the hours
as weeds begin overpowering flowers.
Children gather in cobblestone streets
while others away on summer retreats.
Remembering the days at swimming holes
wearing bikini's for there were no rolls.
Marching time has no compassion
so it's up to us to follow the fashion.

Light and deep at the same time. Can I vote for you once each minute?

The passing of time has its advantages and definitely its disadvantages. I suppose we would all turn the clock back a few years if we could. Your poem captures that well!

great poem

baby dont you work so hard
for this prize you've found,
it will all be gone-when you turn around,
cause nothing lasts forever anyway.
