Wearing time

Gold of earth wrapped
Round wrist
Keeping time with
Eternity.
Oil capturing
Innocence and essence
Of a moment.
She wears the seconds
Like clothing wound
Her thoughts elsewhere
She is bored
Yet amused
By the images in her mind.
Does she know
Hundred years gone
She forever immortal,
Her time frozen,
As she sits patient
Her life remains the same
Wearing her bracelet
Never tarnished
Never faded
Timeless.
