Quickly time passes; seconds run
To minutes, years from hours, days
And on and on it goes, always
Ticking off moments one by one.

At what young age had I begun
To be aware of how it whirls
So dizzily, turning that girl
Into a woman? Barely born
And so soon learning then to mourn —
Yet still rejoicing over pearls.

A décima for the weekly challenge, using the word “whirl” in the C spot this time. I was maybe 7 or 8 when I first was viscerally, painfully aware of time and how it passes. Also shared with the Writers’ Pantry at PSU.

  1. Nice I never heard about decima As deci means 10 I guess it is a 10 line poem
    Oh how time flies I am more aware of time now I get older Interesting that you felt time already at a young age
