HAIKU: I HEAR THE TICKING

By Charles Robert Lindholm

I hear the ticking

when I’m alone with myself

my life Tick-Tocking

Try sitting in the darkness
and silence
of an early morning
before the dawn
with a ticking clock

Close your eyes
and let your mind
wander where it will

let the memories
of yesterdays
flow by
like a babbling brook

listen to your heart
and soul
reminiscing
to the beat of your heart
and the ticking
of the clock

Write down
what it whispers
to you

so you will
always
remember
those moments
