Time-glass (OctPoWriMo)




Dawn breaks the Dark, Earth wafts in space
We rise and shine but by God’s grace
Time trickles through man’s needy
Clutch, while we exhaust its
Taste and touch with
Have and hold
And dreams
And such
We
Groan
Beneath
Love’s letting
Go while moments
Wear our want and woe
And hours bear our sweat and
Tears and all the while days turn to
Years where dawn breaks dark, earth wafts
 in space, we live and love but by God’s  grace
