Magpie Tales ~ 10




no need for clocks
no need for watches
death comes on its own time frame
like a thief in the night
stealing your most precious possession

  4. Helen

    That touched me on a personal level -- I still feel my mothers hand held tightly to mine till she was gone from sight -- but not from my heart.

    Alzheimer's can be a cruel - and a very forgiving illness.

  5. This was profound & this Magpie took me to a similar place. The passage of time...of every hour lived is one hour closer to the final hour. But it is the time in between that counts the most!
    Joanny Alzheimer's is a cruel & insidious disease. I am sorry that your mother was taken from you in this way. My thoughts are with you!

  6. Time, it really is all we have, and then again, we don't have much time at all, do we? Very thought provoking Magpie, nicely done.

  7. So true, so true.
    Thanks for the visit and sweet comment, I will surely pass it on to Melba. Getting ready to take her for a dentist appointment. Just had her last wisdom tooth pulled last week at 92. WOW!
    Hope all are well in your neck of the woods and that this time poem was just something you wanted to share.
    Friday Blessings ;-)

  21. Death is the common theme between us for this prompt :)

    somehow, the watch looks dark and mysterious...

    your composition has come out with a profound meaning, the reality that is life...

    beautifully done :)

    PS: many thanks for dropping by :)

  28. So true...no matter what we do, this is one thing that we have no real control over!! Potions, creams, medicines, living green - when all is said and done, it's not really up to us.
