The Daily Prompt : Clock

The hands of the clock

Keep moving on,

Reminding us of the words,

‘Time and tide wait for none’.

Some look at the clock

And say there is no time,

To do all that we want to do.

Others say what to do with time?

What do we do to pass time?

That is a sad reflection

Of our state of mind,

When time hangs heavily

On our hands.

The minute hand of the clock

Does not seem to move,

We keep looking at the clock,

Urging it to move faster.

But time moves at its own pace.

What we do with time

Is in our hands.

The hands of the clock move on.

Even if they stop, time does not.

‘Time and tide wait for none’.

The Daily Prompt : Clock

 

 

 

By Lakshmi Bhat

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I used to go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. Covid-19 has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. Hopefully I will be able to go there again. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.
