"Time is a brisk wind, for each hour it brings something new... but who can understand and measure its sharp breath, its mystery and its design?" ~Paracelsus
I agree!timeless flies search for fries
Very good advice! :-)
savor each drop as if no more drops are left .. well said
I love simplicity. This is beautiful!
Sugar sweet grain ... what a sweet concept!
The sweetest of haikus!
Loved the way you took those sand grains for sugar sweet grains... and any of them could be the last... So savour it to the best...Fantastic Mag Kathew
Short and sweet. Savoring each tiny bit.
Would that we all could live each moment fully but we always think there will be a tomorrow.
Enjoy the here and now. I'll drink to that!
I wish you sugar in each hour of the glass. Some have sand. And I'm with Martin H!
Ah, yes, the wonderful grain of time! Very nice!
Well said. Time, we always think we have so much of it left, but...
Dear Kathew: I am transformed by your haiku magic! The logic in your words and sublime and wise. I'm going try to do another Haiku too! Love this!
mmm pour some sugar on me! (lol) Nice Magpie! This is such fun!
yes..enjoy each grain....bkm
What life would really be if all thought in terms of last days, but so easily we forget the important things in life.Thank you for visitting my blog. I think Jack left enough of his gremlins unsaid... there might be another installment forthcoming, I'll see what I can do.
Kathew,You put your fingeron the pulse; tempus fugit.examine each grain.rel
I'm really cheered by this..a good way to live!!
A timely reminder.
Lovely haiku...so true.
Excellent advice! If only I had time to spare to do so, lol! =)-Weasel
I always imagined salt or sand in the glass. Sugar keeps turning up here and there. I like that much better.
and once it is gone you will never get it back...sweet magpie!
We forget how precious time is. Seeing the sand as sugar, and the sugar as sweet time, is an interesting touch.
I would appreciate a follow-up explaining exactly HOW I can do that?I know. Too stubborn for too long leaves no hope for the old codgers of the world.I think I'm down to two grains of sand left.
I love the last line...sweet indeed!
Fair warning to us all to remember how fast time slips away. Truer words never spoken.
So so true to bad we so often forget.
Thats what we normally foret to do.~Harsha
"How sweet it is" to quote the late Jackie Gleason. Well done.
Simple. Short. Sweet.
Time is sweet! You're right! Thanks for the new metaphor to ponder...
Great job gal. I agree. Thanks for stopping by. BlessingsQMM
I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page.
