WHAT TIME IS IT?

What time is it?
Having satisfied my question
I wonder who is looking
And is there someone looking back at me

Hung high above the side street
We stroll hand in hand
Lovers once
Up close the years show in your face
Like the numbers on the face of the clock
There is no going back

Life is a one way street
That flow is south
Through the dry desert
Even goes underground
Perhaps even forgets

I glance at the clock again
Only runs one way
Fun to see you once again
Sometimes old memories
Remain forever

  1. Ha, I thought I commented on this. I love “the years show in your face.” I love the line about life being a one way street through the desert, sometimes going underground.

    1. Yes, Sherry you did. I also posted on Somethingithinkabout-annell-annell.blogspot.com Because it is connected with my own website.

    There are occasions that provoke to bring back memories. It happens when one bumps into someone unexpectedly.! It is a nice feeling, annell!

  3. I like the way you start your poem with the time-old question, which illustrates humans’ preoccupation with a man-made concept. I love the nostalgia of the second stanza, especially the lines:
    ‘Up close the years show in your face
    Like the numbers on the face of the clock
    There is no going back’.

  4. Yes, time is a one way street.. with never a minute to lose in appreciating those who travel a way with us.
