brought me to
carry the fire
shut your eyes or look away
i’m only time, constantly
in a memory

Robin, I really enjoy the way you’re able to capture a moment in such a succinct manner. I just love the notion of time, animated, having the conscience to stop, I’m thinking out of respect, for the past. thanks for posting:)
you’re welcome… time does seem to stop for me, while continue on for others… and isn’t it really both for all of us at times? i could mess with the notion of time, forever 🙂
gorgeous picture and poem. we should let our heart lead us.
yes, not the clock 😉
Lovely, deep and meaning ful!
beautiful creativity in your work here. It evokes such peace in the “now.”
there is peace in the now… i try to make the “now” last as long as possible
now this made me think
me too 🙂
thank you, jingle
Indeed a brief yet consuming concept of time; how still we are in the grasp of a memory.
A pleasure reading you once again, Robin.
thank you, robert, for stopping by… i love time
Very nice. Every well chosen word in its place and none to waste, Great take on time.
thanks, glad you enjoyed… i always know if a word is off….
“Stopping alone in memory” so true, lovely
yes, time does stop. glad you see it too.
perfectly true! unstoppable time may be, it can stay in a memory 🙂
I can get lost in the flow of time, pausing just to blink, and find things have shifted around me. A memory is the black hole of time, collecting seconds and moments to its center where they become bright flashes and then are gone.
i like that description … Thanks
Wonderful as always….
thank you 😉
Brilliant. Time stops only for a memory — that’s very insightful!
thanks, yes it does… 😉
Excellent poem, love live the memory that stops time 🙂
This is a beautiful page. And your words are mesmerizing!
Time – what a power it has! Loved this little read, indeed!
“shut your eyes or look away
i’m only time”
find this soothing, for some reason.
people create anxiety over time constraints. i don’t. 😉
