The Clock and the Now

The time labelled ‘past’ had an end
And the future we guess with a trend.
But the present is real
Like a now we can feel
That the clock tries but can’t comprehend.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

    1. Thanks! I tend to write using fixed forms except for prose poetry. This helps with the sound, but it can’t replace content or the message of the poem for significance.
