Time ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #242

I often wish
That I could perceive time
Like a hummingbird does
Slow the world down
And watch the air ruffle its feathers
On every delicate beat
Hear the swish of its wing
Rather than the hum and blur
Of time compressed beyond imagining

I often wish
That I could perceive time
Like mountains of stone
Or a star
Minutes pass like seconds
Epochs turned as the sun crosses the sky
To watch the birth and death of solar systems
The way in one short life
I’ve seen the comings and goings
Of family and fame

But this is the time I’m given
And but for the tricks
Of cameras and imagination
This is all the time I have
So best to try and wrench from it
Every moment I can experience

Vagabond ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #238

Note:
Rule change this week!
See below.

To move
Through time and space
By act of will

Undeterred and
Undirected by
Duty or responsibility

Led not by
Leash or force
Nor beholden to another’s wish

But to stay
In just one place
So long as restless heart desires this

Then move along
To some place other
There to find what’s there to see
