Sound of time








the sound of time
once moved
slowly
toward my future
only to
speed up
as my future
quickly becomes
my past

missing moments said...

Yep, I wrote this on the plane coming back home ... thinking how fast time went by while vacationing. As a kid, all I could think about was becoming older. Now, the years are rushing past way too fast!

Lovely photos and a lovely poem. Can someone slow down the time a little?

Beautiful poem and it looks like that sandpiper was winking at you.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Wonderful Reena. Did you write this poem? Very true to life.

Bob Bushell said...

I love the the photography, and I find the poem is fantastic, but, do we have to change that much?

Nadege, said...

I so feel your words. When you get to an age where a good part of your life is behind you, you just want time to slow down.

I love your edit in the first photo.

Brian Miller said...

nice....really like the pics...the gull esp. quicker and quicker it seems to go....

CherryPie said...

Lovely photos and quote :-)

Stewart M said...

Hi there - that first gull image is really great. We spend a lot of time trying to get images that are sharp, and along comes this one and it’s just so much more interesting!

Also read the post before - just to make you jealous, we have just had our ninth species on parrot in (or over!) the garden!

Jill said...

So very, very true.

Beautiful photos.

Kanelstrand said...

Loving the photos.

I don't particularly like the sound of time these days. It is too hurried and yet quiet. Sneaky in a way.

Evelyn S. said...

Gee, Reena....another "punch-in-the-stomach/heart" poem! I'm two months away from turning 69....there is NO WAY I could be that old! And you know what comes after 69!

Beautiful bird images....and beautiful verse.

Beautiful words and photos!

I am totally a sucker for shots from behind...that first image grabbed me right away. How true the wrods you shared. I believe that is wisdom.

Simply gorgeous! The texture on the first one is really peaceful and lovely!

That is one gorgeous picture. Well actually two but you know what I mean :) Love the verse to go with it too.

I have noticed that time is speeding up too:) I am glad it slowed down enough for you to get these fabulous shots:)
