The Hourglass

 Original Photo / Eduardo Diez Vinela  :


Life is encased,

In a glass bevelled keeper,

Where sands that flow freely,

Are moments that matter,

And the memories we carry,

Are but crystalline grain,

Free falling slowly,

Like the patter of rain.


Life is unmeasured,

And its certainty vague,

Where time is oblivious,

Content to let fade,

And faced with oblivion,

A mere life time away,

We turn the glass over,

So we still have today.
