TIME By Celestina Omor

Tick-Tock,
Tock-Tick,
My time is buried in some ancient frame,
Voiceless yet its fingers speak.
I just heard a tock!
It can’t be stopped,
I would have robbed.

This frame is like my prudent mama,
Putting my stride in place,
Hence,I won’t be at peace till I’m a piece.
The faithful ticker wipes my speck off,
Now I’m a seer of my own destiny.

Make that rich hay
When the heavens joke and tease the dry earth,
Make hay,
For the seasons change even before the ticker knows.
