Portions of the Day

I know Time

how it regulates a life

the ticking clock

portions out the day

in segments or

in pieces

I recognize the silence of its


the silent smugness

but its significance is beyond

my brief

it is not my master

though it creates gaps

I cannot fill

people with their friendships

alas come and go

they have things to do

the stuff of memories

yet there is no reverse

just the cycle….

moving at its own momentum
