Hands Of Time


Another day flies

Another written letter

Another scribbled note

Another hidden text

Another word of reassurance

Another whispered fear

Another hollow scream

Another dream shattered

Another poured out heart

Another hem to touch

Another promise never to leave

Another forgotten tear

Another forsaken tree

Another palm engraved

Another hand reaches out

Another new beginning

    This makes all the difference, another hand reaching out ~ May we always make full use of that time for another one ~

    Oh yes those hands of time do fly with all those things going on. Glad there is a hand reaching out as well–leaves the poem on a positive note.

    So much for two important hands….

    Very creative take on the prompt, Alan. Your use of anaphora repetition throughout, imbues the piece with the monotone quality of a “list” which, when juxtaposed against the closing lines, is dramatic and uplifting.

  7. Mary says:

    The repetition in your poem works, Alan; and the hand reaching out definitely can inspire a new beginning.

  8. Laurie Kolp says:

    Great ending alan! I love poems that ends with a finality, better yet on a positive note in fact!


  12. Alan,

    I enjoyed this journey through some of the trials and experiences life can thow at us. In all of the happenings, hands hoped to soothe and do the trick of helping..
    A realistic experience in well chosen words..


  13. No matter how low we feel sometimes, if we have a hand that reaches out to us we feel a lot better. Nice poem 🙂

  15. Truedessa says:

    I like the thought of a new beginning..it gives one a sense of hope.

    Always another if we watch for the opening of the door.

  17. Meenal Sonal says:

    Very well presented and of course another brilliant work by you 🙂

  18. arathi says:

    another beginning is what gives hope to live another day…

  19. Nicholas V. says:

    It is good to leave behind us those things that we can no longer change or influence, and to try to move on and begin afresh, learning from past mistakes. Beautifully written, Alan.
