'The Clock Ticks.....'

The clock ticks.
The hourglass releases yet another grain of sand
To drop through the delicate orifice which registers the passage of time.
The sun rises. The sun sets, and thirty (or so) repititions
Mark the passing of a month, and THAT multiplied by twelve;
The ending of a year.
The heart beats.
Another drop of oxygen-laden blood is pumped
Into those areas that act, react, respond to
And recognize the using of a life.
The clock ticks.
The sun rises. The sun sets.
The heart beats.
And time, the great equalizer continues to expend itself.
Only ONCE will this moment travel THIS path.
What has evolved is gone.
What remains is anticipated with hope.
Only ONCE can time be constructively spent.
Only NOW can be controlled.
The clock ticks...NOT merely a monotonous ritual
But the heralding of this sacred moment
When all are challenged to choose wisely how we observe
The passing of time.
