Poem Idea - Clock Tipping

clock-262x300

Tick tock, tock tick…cling clang, swish, swish…the sounds of a clock provide enough rhythm to create your verse…however, the slowly moving hands and the rapidly flying times add another dimension to the simple yet somewhat necessary device.

If a watch pot never boils, does a watched clock lose time? Think of the moments when the hands seemed to hold still. Think about the moments when the second hand beat, beat, beat its incessant sound into your mind and began to impact your spiritual well being. When were those moments? Did the clock succeed in wearing you down? Or, did it help you move along quicker?

Connect to the emotion it brings. Remember poems are simple, but have all the power of a story in a little, tiny space. Post it here, or share elsewhere, but write and enjoy…
