My poems on fleeting Time:
Time flies on wings
Time merrily sings.
Time dear memories hold
Time’s more precious than gold.
Time cherished moments unfold
Time whizzesTime zips
Time tells stories untold.
We try to clasp it and grasp it
With all our powers
Elusive time slips away
By seconds, by minutes, by hours.
Flow of Time
Like green leaves that turn yellow and wither away
Like buds that blossom and fade away
Like white clouds that turn sullen gray
Like lengthening shadows darken the day.
The whirligig of time brings forth
Mysteries hidden in time’s womb
The only certain destiny death
That stone cold tomb.
Like a flickering flame blown out by the wind
Life’s breath is soon extinguished.
So we too shall pass away
And while on this journey, we may
In this deepening gloom, shine a bright ray
Love, help, encourage, pray
A new beginning every day.
Life is short. Time is fleeting. There is so much to do. So many desires and wishes unfulfilled. So many to-do lists. So many bucket lists. I have my own list but I will leave that for the next post. Making up a list is easy. But to make it happen, the first thing to do is to stop procrastinating. And start doing.
Well, here are a few quotes I found, on procrastination, which may spur you on.
“One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted…Do it now.”: Paulo Coelho
“Procrastination is my sin
It brings me naught but sorrow
I know that I should stop it
In fact, I will—-tomorrow! “: Gloria Pitzer
(This one resonates with me)
And the definition for “Tomorrow”?
“Tomorrow: A mystical land where 99% of all human productivity, motivation and achievement is stored”.
“Procrastination is the thief of time”.
“Remember, time lost can never be regained”.
“A year from now you may wish you had started today”: Karen Lamb
So start today. Now.
Life is short and time is fleeting. Stop procrastinating.
