                hand side border


Time passing slowly
Hours seeming like minutes
Years feeling like seconds

A sunrise lasting
Forever
Red fingers of light
Tickling the land awake

A sunset passing
Too fast
Throwing all into gloomy darkness

Stars twinkling
In the infinity of night
Seen from a time long past
Light forever gone
Found
Simply passing through

Time broken
Into constructs born of man
Unreal
A measure of how much we have left
Time
Passing slowly
