A Timeless Face


A clock with no face encroaching on my place

It sleepwalks through space with no set pace

It’s lost all time must be a quarter of nine

A puzzled black hole transcribes its soul

Search engines for a face is its ultimate goal





This week the event is to Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word place. Please drop by and join the fun at Patricia’s Place

    Well done.. I don’t know where you get your ideas from? A clock with no face !!! Diane

      Thank you, Diane. Sometimes, I don’t know where my ideas come from either. They just decide to show up. πŸ™‚

    How fascinating that your response to the word “place” was a description of “noplace” – and out of time as well. VERY creative. Loved the graphic too – hypnotic.

        This has been a crazy couple of weeks for me, Eugenia – a week of ill health followed by a week of WordPress glitches – so I feel really bad that I’m still playing catch up on my visits around the blog-o-verse. Perhaps the weekend will be a bit kinder to my schedule – lol. πŸ™‚

        Thanks for reading and commenting here meanwhile!

    Sometimes I wish the clock didn’t have a face and its pace would be more to my liking. You do make me think when reading your imaginative writings. Thanks for linking to In Other Words.

      Yes, me too. Clocks bring on too much reality. Our moment in time will never repeat itself and clocks are to blame. πŸ™‚ Thank you for reading and commenting.

    Is time real or a figment of our imagination? Eugenia. Is the image on your clock moving forwards or backwards? Your words have started some interesting thoughts.

      Sometimes I believe time is a figment of our imagination or is it something real that we don’t want to acknowledge, Thank you for commenting.

    Your place or mine
    Forever will be
    Where we both reside
    Happily πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰πŸŒΌ
