Time Waits For No Man

PAD Challenge day 20: For today’s prompt, pick a popular saying, make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.

Never early, never late
Mystic moment-metered gait
Does not hurry, does not wait
Free-for-all free-falling
Week-month-year; it ticks away
When it ceases none can say
Elemental calling

Here it is and there it goes
...and here it is; it never slows
Composer of rhyme and prose
Metrical arrangement 
My, we sigh, 'how Time does fly'
Hello, we say, then goodbye
Morn-noon-night colors the sky
Momentous estrangements

Feel it, hear it, touch it, taste
It is too precious to waste
Never falters, never hastes 
Season follows season
Unequivocal design
Articulate pantomime
Moment-manifesto; time
And it waits for no one

Janet Martin

I began this poem much earlier...then Time got away on me😀


  1. Yes, indeed time waits foe none. We only have to make up to it and cherish our moments.

    1. Hi:) Yes, you are right! 'cherish our moments because NOTHING stays the same for very long!
