Photographer by Tama66

Image by Tama66

Time, Time, racing past,
I want my life to last, to last.
Time, O Time, slow for me,
Let my life be hurry-free,
I want to spend some time with me.

Time, Time, where did you go?
You were too fast. I was too slow.

The poem’s no great shakes, but I fell in love with this image (called ‘Photographer’) found on pixabay and then had to find something to use it with. I thought it apt.

    Isn’t that always the way of it? We think we have all the time in the world and suddenly, we realise we so don’t!

      The poem was written at the end of a long, ongoing illness; I couldn’t see the end, only more of the same. It seemed I’d had my life, nothing more to look forward to. And then I, incredibly I recovered. But, 15 years gone. Time, it went without me. But I’m back on track; just not as young as I was (!)

        However, you are here now, wiser and probably have learned how to cope with all sorts of things. I am so very happy you are recovered now, Crispina.
        None of us are any younger!

    Actually, I really like the poem…utter simple truth. Even when you know its going fast, you still can’t get out of your own way to do what you want to do. Me I mean. Why is that? Inertia I guess.

    I like the photographic art too…nice feel to it.

      I thank you, Judy. Time is behaving most oddly for me of late. One day it creeps, another it skids away at alarming speed. Makes no difference which it is, I still don’t get everything done!
