At Six O'Clock

At Six O'Clock

A Poem by Brian M. Peeples

I ponder many thoughts,

at six o’clock.

It is when I hear the sound

of a tick-tock.

Each moment, each beat,

the hum drum ba-dum

of a sound, ever so sweet.

The trickling waters

of time’s flow,

through and through,

as they align

me to you.

Its sound is delicate,

as it resonates art.

And its elegance

portrays that, of a

beating heart.

I find myself in awe,

at the hourglass

upon an old, dusty shelf,

that ticks away

the rest of my wealth.

At six o’clock,

I am here, upon this rock,

waiting... waiting...

for your heart, sing.

One last time,

so that I can,


call you mine.

As we are now...

...lost in endless

Beautifully written, Brian! The clock ticking denotes time passing by, obviously waiting for...what? You leave that thought hanging, but that's a GOOD thing! That little bit of trepidation in readers' minds, that pregnant pause...tick tock. The end reveals the love you have been waiting for...singing love from her stance in the heavens...calling you, beckoning. GREAT piece of writing. This goes into my library favorites! take care...dan

Shows your passion for one love in your life and moves through time well.
Waiting for that perfect shared moment to come and day dreaming of it as the time passes slowly.

Old age teaches old men like me the value of time.
"The trickling waters
of time’s flow,
through and through,
as they align
me to you."
I like the way you defined time. Some memories become endless. Permanent scars to remind us we had loved once. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.
