About time

Time's Prison
by Henry Burt Stevens
1/13/2001


Tomorrow never comes
it's always today
busy-ness crowding every moment
with anticipation of better times
those long sweet daisy chains
of happy dreams.


But then changes
some so quickly
some barely noticed
till suddenly the clock
seems to stop


In that slow tick
lives the ogre of time
when slow has
overcome fast 
and hope leaves to
live somewhere else


Grayness spreads days
to years
eternity comes early
only broken by a voice
or letter from those
active and cogent.

Aging was not meant for the thought process. Keep an active mind even if the body tries to pull you down with age. Your thoughts reflect your true age wherein they stay so young and full of life. Well done poet

"eternity comes early
only broken by a voice
or letter from those
active and cogent."

Love this last verse, Henry, conceptually, it almost aches, sending shock waves of lonliness into the physical finality of the infinity of mind. Each person views eternity differently. Working through self is a Poet's mission, as it were, as self is integrated, eternity opens...

Your bio pic. made me smile with a type of happiness. There is a sense of comfort with self, and a reaching from a searching soul that appeals to my own.

A truly exceptional write!

Well to be honest I now don't beleive in stopping the aging process. At one point I did obsess too much on aging until I got cancer and suddenly things changed and I wanted to grow older. Funny isn't it?
Reviewed by Lisa Hilbers
Oh if we could only figure out how to stop the aging process..but then..would we not be stopping the process of wisdom as well?
Excellently penned.
