Chronos Steals


“I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.”
— John Burroughs


The clock on second hand wings
soars away with me running after
in frustrated yearning
seeking that extra hour
for laughter with a friend
or tears with another
or a few more moments to read
or make love
or just fuck
Even a song would be nice
yet Chronos steals our moments
and we must make do with what’s left.
Still so much better than
not having a clue
of what to do.

Time and Patience


“The Two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”
— Leo Tolstoy


Time takes and returns
slows down to a crawl
or speeds past like a freight train.
Time sets limits
Chronos is Saturn after all
and the sands keep slipping through.
Patience counters time
while it uses it shamelessly
allowing us to enjoy the present
knowing it won’t last.
Patience has and gives perspective
It tells us that nothing lasts
joy or pain are in the moment
and the moment slips away.
Time tests Patience
and patience outlasts time.
— G A Rosenberg
