    Hands of Time

    I have today
    not tomorrow
    nor yesterday
    not the future
    nor the past.

    Like grasping
    water with my hand
    its presence I see
    but nothing reveals
    in the clasped fist
    the worth of the effort

    Today is a comma
    in eternity.
    It sets off one moment
    from one moment,
    a day from a day.

    Today,
    I will arise
    construct a narrative
    and join
    the commas of my life
    together.

    Today,
    this moment in time,
    will leave
    however small
    a measure of myself
    upon the hands
    of time.

    just ok for me,

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
