Keep it alive

What do you see # 51 – 12 October’20

( For the visually challenged reader. the image shows an hour glass sitting on a small table. The sand has run through the glass. Two hand are reaching for it from opposite ends )

If I could reverse time
as easily as turning over an hourglass
Placing a spotlight on time
Holding it to account before the sand runs out
Trap the last grain, hold it to ransom
Demand time work in harmony
with the way I feel
The days never too long or too short
I would sail through the perfect twenty-four hours
Never moaning there’s not enough hours in the day
Don’t let that last grain of sand get you down
Time is as trapped as we are…
