Time to party

Time is gearing itself up

for the start of the party


Tick tock tick tock


The second hand making

its way impatiently

around the face

counting down until the

festivities begin

little time to waste


the minute hand has

more haste and less speed

steadily moving round

reveling in the moments

taking each one in

without a single sound


then there is the hour hand

slowly biding its time

no need for speed

making its steady way

to its regular destination

only doing what it needs


At certain times of the day

they meet up to say hello

and then, go on their merry way,

at other times

they wear a smile

and later on a frown.


This is for sure not a race

three hands so tightly bound

each have their own pace

each with its own take on time.

An atmospheric piece made even more meaningful with the clocks going back an hour for winter.
