Reena’s Exploration Challenge # 172 – Time

Reena is the host of Reena’s Exploration Challenge

PROMPT #172

The theme is

Components of Time

Your take can be poetic or sci-fi or fiction or a piece of art , whatever catches your fancy.

To whet your imagination a little (actually, it’s more than a little), find 6 minutes to watch the video below.

⏰⏰⏰⏰⏰⏰⏰

One second passes faster than I can blink

Yet it can linger an eternity when I’m trapped in time

Days compressed into minutes and weeks into days

All coalescing into one long unbroken stretch of time

Time is what makes all the difference in everything

It is the great equalizer in all things worldly

Whatever we feel is ours to boast of or treasure

Slowly decays into nothingness with the passage of time

Youth or beauty, charm or talent all eroded

Power or even wealth losses it’s importance in

The ruthless grind of mill of time that never stops

Take whatever bit of time allotted to you

And use it wisely to create a difference in your part of universe

It’s an opportunity that just comes once, like flowing water

This second is already gone, never to return

One second passes faster than I can blink

Yet it can linger an eternity when I’m trapped in time
