THIS THING CALLED TIME

THIS THING TERMED TIME

My feet tell me
from the horizontal:
“TIME to arise”.
They stretch to the morning lavabo
And balance down the stairs
Checking minutes left
Responsibilities attended to.

TIME matters.
I proportion it strategically
To balance the duet  I play
With my chosen significants
Also grounded
In the rise and fall of sunlight
Each day.

TIME treats me well
When I count on it to forward me
Round and round
Dimension to dimension
Stepping to ETERNITY.
