Time

Form: Blank Verse Sonnet

The instant world of everyday life
Has little to share with the time gone by
As pausing for breath is being too weak
But little strength is drawn from SMS
Can love be expressed in a text message?
There’s no comfort found on computer screens
In the glare of light that bleaches the eyes
We are out of sync with nature’s rhythm
No words replace a kiss beneath the moon
The spirit needs connection to the Earth
Hear the voices of ancient forest trees
And walk hand in hand along the seashore
It is in those moments we stop to breathe
That love needs time within a silent pause
