Seize the Moment ©

Stella
Fife, Scotland
2005

Seize the moment as if a dandelion clock
Had just erupted and childlike
To grasp a segment allowed a wish

All the seconds in an hourglass
Together make up roughly
One clock in the meadow

Had you been here earlier
A carpet of yellow
Spread out from tender lion's teeth

It delighted the visitors
Whilst gardeners grieved
Soon clocks would shout.. encore

Bees busied themselves
Children ran on daisy like heads
Time ticked by

So seize the moment
Or wait until a return performance
Graces your path
