Tick Tock

Day and night, tick- tock
The moving hands running past
Every stolen moment counts
I need time to stop now
Alas! My clocks are slowing down
Canโ€™t someone wind them up?
Cruel time waits for none
Someday all my clocks will stop.




This is my response to this week’s ultimate question at Gargleblaster #159. The challenge was to answer the ultimate question “Have all your clocks stopped?” in exactly 42 words.

  1. Hurry up and wait! It seems that the older we get the more we yell this command of our lives.
    but like Gina, it’s the stolen moments that make it all worthwhile, that stop the clocks for a heavenly purpose.


  2. Somehow time never seems to do what we want. Those moments we want to hold slip by, and the ones we want to forget seem to linger. Nice response to the prompt. Thanks for linking it up!

  3. I have no clue how I missed reading this entry on my reader as well as on gargleblaster link. Thanks to Yeahwrite’s tweet I am here now. Great entry, Atreyee, I can hear that tick tock and the fabulous rhythm of your words. May every fleeting second be the best! ๐Ÿ™‚
