Never There

Speeding through life

splitting each moment in two

each one so small it is almost


Left all in our wake

pushed behind us as though it was

never there

We can’t turn around

to notice if something is


a tiny bit caught

in the dragging net

carried by our sinking time


pressing forward

hurdling harder than the wind can push

But before we bow out


it will stop

if even for a moment

the anchor drops

and silence

  1. This is one of the best commentaries on being overly busy that I’ve ever read. Thank you for reminding me how awful it is for life to be so crazy busy. I know I’m sick of it, but I can’t seem to get my husband to stop spending so that I can stop working so much. Maybe it’s time to get rid of him.

  2. Hmmm, sometimes I don’t even know what my poetry is about until someone reads it and tells me! Thanks for this… for me it was about time and where it goes. How it is here and then gone, so quickly. But I love what you saw too. You have such a great eye for getting to the heart of things, that is why your writing is so wonderful. Have you read the newest book by Elizabeth Gilbert? Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. I think you would love it…
