Time treads downward

Time treads downward tick-ticking;
Upward he walks to the woodland,
To hermits’ “Evergreen” bookstore,
To observe, to feel, and to be with.

Dreamy murmuring streams hum;
And mystic tip-toeing spirits hiss him;
Soothe the sweeping, balmy breezes;
And plays in his swelling heart peace.

Nuts dive in honey on his leafy plate;
Pages flip through on his rocky bed,
Owls anoint with lullabies his ears;
And time, through his grip, slips him.

  1. I loved this..even though I didn’t understand it HAHAH. I have a hard time understanding poetry in general, but I think they all carry such a unique, powerful, and meaningful message within, and yours is no exception. Really well done :))
