About time

As the moments pass by
Faster than fast
Then standstill perhaps
Tick tock
Just never enough
As we move through the atmosphere
Of these lives we are a part of.
Universe open
The mind drifts slowly
Leisurely like a summer walk
Then fast like the stars that
Race by in the dark of night,
Elements of surprise
Here then gone
And the day over
Before it began
It seems.
Breathe in and out
To the motion of
Blood rushing through veins
Ebb and flow
Of this very minute captured
As the fingers spill words
Just a drop in an endless sea
Of pages empty or filled.
