Trading My Hours

Sponsor:

 

 

Eight hours spent

infront of my computer

Two more hours

infront of my tv

Another two

infront of faces I do not know

braving my way back home

and finding some spot

inside a tightly-packed train

 

 

Which of these hours

were truly mine

which hours

the hours I’d look forward to

when I open my eyes from sleep?

 

 

 

 

O, that I may spend more hours

living

running

walking beneath the pouring rain

 

I’d give my hours

for some minutes

with which I can look beyond the sky

and catch myself some butterflies

 

 

I’d give my minutes

for some seconds

a miniscule moment

in which there’d be a kiss

a song

an eternity

that never fades

    Hi Jocelyn,

    I love your blog header image and the concept of the blog being a spirituality cafe. Keep serving up the nourishing poems and articles!
