So Slowly Move

So Slowly  Move

So slowly move the  hands of time,
around  the chequered board  of life,
faltering, then moving on,
relentless in its endless journey.
Sweeping though the joys of youth,
surpassing angst and doubt,
Yet never resting once to let
unwilling travellers out

Grammy, 
Awesome! I think that about describes that. I just loved that. So thoughtful, and thought provoking. Beautifully done, my honorary Grammy. Had to Pin it. 
Funny how life's hours drag sometimes, isn't it? Yet the years just fly by. Times a funny thing. 
Loved it!! 

Matthew.

Hi Lodigiana...Time has a way of not letting us catch our breath to process life events before going on to new ones and new memories....all having some purpose but sometimes we are unable to understand some...The good times seem to go too fast, and the agony ones stay too long...but we are unable to stop time from pushing us onward until the grave.  Great imagery of how time can be in control over our lives.  xo ;)
