I held time
scooped in my hand
and watched as I lost it
with each grain of sand

Yup. They're good for that. :)
Your brief breath of imagery reminds me of how perplexing time can be, at once seeming like it's passing by too quickly & also not fast enuf (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thanks for appreciating this little bit of brevity, Margie!
A lovely piece of brevity Ana. So visual. Makes you want to appreciate each living moment. Time certainly doesn't hang about.

Hi Chris, thank you. Yes, every living moment... :)


On reading this little gem and without any conscious effort whatsoever, each corner of this old fella's mouth curled upwards to the sky............. most deserving of the full marks awarded :)

sand is hard to hold...time is hard to hold, love is even harder to hold.
