Life Clock

One pleasure of vacation is a bit more flexibility in the morning. Each Thursday morning, Laura P. Salas shares a photo prompt and a 15-Words-Or-Less poetry challenge. I’ve loved participating in the past, but recently have found that the photo prompt arrives as I’m on my way out the door to work, or at least quickly moving in that direction. With the luxury of unscheduled time, I was able to participate this week. Today’s photo inspired this response from me, colored by the recent loss of a long time family friend.

Life Clock

magnificent, intricate system
each whirligig
and curlicue
mysteriously synchronized
in rhythmic beat

until it’s not
