Finally, it’s time;
the clock yields to a new day.
The night lingered
but now —
Chores to be effectuated,
items off the list to be scratched.
not a solitary moment to be wasted!
The hours racing each other to the finish line…
Father Time will not yield to trivial needs,
relentlessly pushing each grain of sand
through the hour glass.
but to have
four, five, six more hours
adjoined to a turn of the earth.
Wait! They exist —
Tick, tick, tick…
