Time turns;
living, loving,
leaving, moving,
unpacking belongings
from battered boxes
neath a new roof
my thoughts will soon
echo through,
the faithful and familiar
find prized places
in new positions.
All that has changed
is the clock I hang
on a new hook
in this new home.

For time, like life,
never stays put;
with every tick
it tells the tale
of where we’ve been
and what’s yet to unfold.

    Well, you know I always like poems about time, but I especially like the second stanza. Did you get the place with the views and beams?

      Thanks Merril!! πŸ€—πŸ€—
      I did, l’m beaming with joy! It’s mine from tomorrow so this weekend will be a cleaning and prep and measuring weekend and a gradual move in August! Will miss this place but change is what keeps us going! Another wall to build words around πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ‘

        Oh, lovely! Wonderful news. Beam away! πŸ™‚ Moving is not fun, but at least you’ll have a nice leisurely one (as much as that can be).
