New Beginnings/dVerse

New Beginnings

The clock struck one and away we run
Somewhat strange for a sundial
Never heard it before
Didn’t know it could speak

The clock struck two
Just me and you
Put the kettle on
Sit for a spell

The clock struck three
One more than you and me
Take a nap
Get up for the news

The clock struck four
We sit and chat some more
I share my news
You tell me yours

The clock struck five
Man alive
In the kitchen
What shall I cook

The clock struck nine
The day ceases to be
Draw your bath
Say your prayers

Wait for morning
Begin again

Love this! Filled with allusion. Man alive, a delightful read!

A new beginning every day. I liked that reference to the sundial.

I think counting the hours is good... unless it's at night and you should be asleep...

I, too, love the new beginning every day. Mornings are a great invention. Blessed by roosters. Smiles.

Marking the hours with small but meaningful daily activities...nice nursery rhyme sound to this.

And so it goes, new mornings to start again.

Taking time off.....

I am taking some time off from posting on my blog.  I am studying, practicing, have so much to learn....
