Time Sheds Light

Time Sheds Light

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

Time Sheds Light

 

A royal clock ticks

As its hands refuse to slumber.

An order mimicked,

Hungry for the next number.

 

Casting long shadows

In its own right,

It ever follow--

Time sheds light.

 

Waiting for no one,

It charges ahead.

Its work never done,

From sun-up to finding its bed.

 

Breaking forth from darkness

Into dawn, forsaking the night,

Leading the way in its harness--

Time sheds light.

 

Good or bad, its passage in haste,

It’s there for everything.

To break, to heal, to birth, to finely age,

Holding all in its wings.

 

As souls close in on eternity,

Let’s strive to make the greatest of life

By showing Christ in a way all can see--

Using our time to shed the Light.

Time shedding tears. Now... that is a new concept. Even for you. But i do like where you're going with this. It's catchy. Truly catchy.

Thank you for reading. God bless.
I agree dear Melinda.
"As souls close in on eternity,
Let’s strive to make the greatest of life
By showing Christ in a way all can see--
Using our time to shed the Light."
We need to lead with concern, kindness and love. We need the light of hope and forgiveness. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

Time hmm,in poetry I've read about time in the abstract and diced into segments but never as the focus of the verse.Very nicely done!Time is our keeper and our releaser,did we infact invent time or did time invent us.Your verse stays right on track from start to finish.A suggestion to help the flow in the 3rd line of next to last stanza "To break,birth,heal and finely age"worked better for me.But then I'm no expert on poetry but I do write some interesting verse.
