There is no time to look at the blooming flower
There is no time to look at the perched bird
Nor any chance to find time for a small prayer
Time ambles along with you glued to the gadget
as you spend time looking at the varying stocks
undecided for there is no time for you to decide
for there is no time to sit on the rocks and gaze
at the time keeper setting far away into the dark
You have no time to enjoy the delicious food
no time to thank the loved one who serves it
as you kill time on chat with a distant friend
who has no time to meet you anytime soon
Time stops and slowly passes you over
for chiming time has proved time and again
you have no time dear available to value it.

the time keeper setting far away into the dark – so beautifully you convey this, this time keeper has more than just registering time on the clock. Your poem is beautiful, brings an important reminder.

Wow, this reminds of the lines,

We have no time to stand and stare.”
