BarAThon Prompt 7: Promise

August 7, 2016

The fine sand never stops trickling.

The hour glass never deters from its job.

It made a promise to time.


The hands never stop moving.

The seconds never last.

The clock made a promise to time.


The stellar beauty at the center of our world

Never fails to rise and set.

He made a promise to time.


The cycle of time never stops turning.

It creates and destroys moments eternally.

It made a promise to itself.


We make pages of to-do lists.

We’ve many goals to achieve,

The road to them seems to never end.

We move from ‘inspired’ to ‘lost’ continually.

We never are able to hold moments to last a while.

I think of this when I think

Of the hourglass, clock and the sun,

Didn’t we repeatedly promise time?



P.S. This week of blogging has taught me that I can keep up with my personal goals and deadlines. This week has definitely helped me reach new creative highs. I have evolved as a writer. A big shout-out to the lovely folks at Blog-A-Rhythm for this awesome effort. Keep them coming!

Thank you lovely readers, for the never-wavering and always motivating support.

On a final note, I make a promise to myself to be a better and regular blogger. I promise to try and make others smile because of my words for many more posts to come.
