A Timely Subject

If I had the time,
I'd throw work out the window,
-spend it all with you.

Since you are here now,
And maybe no tomorrow
-we'll go for that walk.


If I could stop time,
I would keep this moment
-pressed in my journal.

For many years now,
I've worked twentyfour/seven
-all alone in room.

Arrived in heaven,
Peter led me to my cloud
-a vast library.

Wonderful twist to close the poem! The wry humour there is utterly brilliant and so annoyingly logical but unexpected! Great paradoxical tensions!

I love the image of a moment pressed in a journal.

I love the idea of moments pressed in a journal. I find myself trying to journal as many of my special moments as I can. I don't always do them justice, but I press on.

A wistful look at passing days - the final haiku is a fitting end. Nice!
