Time Ticks Away

I’m baaaack! After a hiatus from blog-world and a 1000 mile move, I have new fodder for the mind and heart. This started as a long essay in my mind on the passage of time, of our lives screaming by at record pace–all because of an obnoxious clock that ticks loudly on the wall. But the poet in me trimmed it to a mere 34 words.Tick, Tick

by Sara Marie Allen

Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick,
clock on wall
yells that time passes
fast as heart beats.
Tick, tick, tick, tick,
anxiety rises with
seconds gone forever.
Tick, tick, tick,
in God’s Hands.
Tick, tick.
