The Passing of Time

No Time to Waste

From the Daily Post 11/10/14 – Fill in the blank: “Life is too short to _____.”  Now, write a post telling us how you’ve come to that conclusion.

Today, in my neighborhood a murder was committed.  You can read about it here.  It made me realize that the precious commodity called life should never be taken away from us.  Time is the measurement that gauges how long we will live.  Life is too short to WASTE!  Hug your loved ones today – time is ticking!

Time Passages

Time is measured by the passing of a second,

An occasion, a moment, a period of time –

It is the steady ticking of a clock, the rhythm of a heart beat.

Time is scheduled, clocked, calculated,

Figured and re-figured for ways to acquire more time.

Time is a commodity, an article of trade for humankind.

Time is an era, an epoch, a generation –

Passing from birth to death, as time slowly creeps along,

while the wheel of life gradually trudges on.

The spiral of time –

GONE in the blink of an eye!

  1. A great poem in honour of life and time, Colleen. That’s why when anything ever does not go my way, I always think just how lucky I am in the life that I have. A wonderful partner, a loyal and loving dog that both make life so wonderful for me. Any negativity is well and truly locked outside our lives when ever it comes calling and we have dealt with it.

  2. This is so true. There is no warning with alarms and whistles that tell us when that time is coming. You may be going along with your daily duties when you here it on the radio that there was a train crash in Glendale and there are some fatalities. Then you go to the station with your son and the Sheriff is there to greet you, to tell you that your loyal husband was one of the departed. No warning. Just another day.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
