Tick Tock

Tick Tock

A Poem by MsJewel
"

just a little scribble

"

 

digital art compliments of myopera

 

~~~

I’ve never been one to watch the dark sky unfold

or count the tick of the clock

between the sweet kiss of a warm breeze

and the tickle

of sand between my toes

 

Still…it feels like winter…and the clouds, ashen gray

hide the moon…

 

As the waves rise and fall in perfect rhythm

to a seabirds serenade

and the ocean of memories

stinging my eyes

and teasing my heart

with yesterday

 

And so…

I’ll chase tomorrow,

never bursting the bubble of dreams

that wait

with the sweet kiss of a warm breeze

somewhere behind this dark sky

 

Tick tock

i like the irony...i never count the time...nor watch the dark sky unfold..and yet the speaker does just that...and then decides to chase the sun, somewhere between that dark sky...and she starts to pay attention to time because she feels it slipping away, and she needs to make the most of her life now.

really absorbing piece.

'Tick Tock'
Msjewel,
Yes the title does get my attention in it's reminder to be aware of what and who fills our time, our days. This was meaningful to me in its beginning of warm sand tickling the toes to how we can become encroached in troubles within our lives. But the adventure in real.
Thanks for a beautiful and inspiring piece.

This time a little patience is required until the grey clouds pass and the sun's rays break through once more, with all the its wondrous delights !

A thoughtful and smooth poem of tolerance and hope !

Thank you for your lovely comment. :) Julie
the melancholy in this poem is palpable yet you don't leave us there in the chill....there is the movement toward light and I found that aspect of this poem simply beautiful
