No Time


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.

  1. 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.

  2. Very true…… It’s a blessing to sit n enjoy the sunset and the blooming flower…..n even the tiny nod of the freshly unfurled leaf….. Beautiful poem Sunith
