Poem of the Week: “Today I Watched the Minutes Turn”

Thursday greetings!

Wow! So, a lot has happened in the past couple weeks. My cousin/best friend, Kara, came to visit me for a week. Toward the end of her visit, our Mawmaw and her brother, Kohlten, came for a few days until they all drove back home together. We had a wonderful time!

Furthermore, on Sunday, I got a call… Can you guess? I was blessed with an unexpected job! So, I have been working this week. In all this, I have gotten a bit behind on my schoolwork as well as my blogging. 😦 No worries! I have a poem for you today. It’s an Alyssa original:

“Today I Watched the Minutes Turn.”

“Today I watched the minutes turn

I’ve seen the sun go swiftly down

I see the clock hands slowly move

One tick vanishes as another resounds

Today I watched the minutes turn

I saw the hours go quickly by

Soon the hours will be days

Oh! How time does fly!

As minutes turn and suns do set

As clock hands move and ticks resound

I’m reminded Oh! so vividly

How time can somehow have us bound

We live our lives by minutes and hours

We measure by ticks of the clock

Our life is spent concerned with time

And hoping to have as much as we ought

Life can slowly pass us by

Are we satisfied thus far?

Life can slip through our grasping hands

Have we loved and reached the stars?

Today I watched the minutes turn

They escaped into the past

Today I watched the minutes turn

Which one will be the last?”

~ Alyssa Dulaney

I like to think this one speaks for itself… Let me know what you think!
