Time Was

100 words for September


Time was time was less important to me
It seemed to stretch out slow and endlessly
Affirming my dreams as distantly true
A glorious bird soared to deep distance
A heart ticked on its near to truest course
A smile so lingering on lips so close
I taste them although it is long since then
So noticeably unmoved I’m moved now

Quick time has taken on new meaning now
A clock somewhere is ticking down the fall
Into an age of frost and sleeting ice
Ironic though that seems to me now days
Snowfall will come to me in Hawai`i
