Tick Tock

Artist:  Randy Sturridge


Chop the lumber splintered wood
Stack the logs inside the shed
Close the hatches secure the locks
Closely watch the clock Tick Tock


Have some bread enjoy some milk
Threatening winds upon the door
Threaded sweaters layered thick
Listen closely as the old clock Ticks


Grab the quill dip it in ink
Point to parchment begin an entry
Thunder growls after flashes bright
The clock ticks on into the night

Tempatures drop old faithful clock stops
Logs and flint bring a fire to life
A flurry erupts and envelopes the night
A blizzard stops time locked and resigned


Company vacant in these times of sleet
As mother nature screams so violently
Burying shelters and cabins in snow
The clock is stopped though time does go


Days weeks for it could be months
A reprieve from the tumultuous bizzard void
Ticking of a clock can drive all insane
When locked indoors for weeks in a cage


Resigned to allow minds to transcend
The watching of time drain til blizzards end

Thank you...I'm glad that you enjoyed this. Relativity is very interesting to me and is very power depending on the scenario...I have written two more poems on time that can be found under the "Randy Sturridge" Tag or "Time" tag on the right.

Entitled, "Time's Deisgn"

Entitled, "Invariable Memories"

If you have a site please do link back below any of the poems and I will head your way and check out your work...If you do not have a site I am always happy to host poems...

Thank you.
