Facing Time


by Sharon Goodier

So many watches. So little time.

We hurry, are late, early

never arrive, never leave

 

Mechanisms of time

counting seconds

minutes, hours

past, future

a canyon of possibilities

to jump or fly

to revel in minutes of freedom

stolen from the expectations of others

 

only in this moment

we are
