Flow and never so slow
Glow always to show
The way down through the days
Of our lives just gone by in a daze
Flow and never so slow, I say.

So many ways we stray
In a bid to live and find daily feed
Open skies with birds singing away
The choruses of ages gone astray
Flow and never so slow.

Flow and never so slow;
Time, you ageless marker
Of legacies and leprous ignominy
Watch and mark, but never so slow
Flow and never so slow


Never so slow.

  1. Lovely. Seems to remind me of the saying ‘vanity upon vanity’…

    Nice one…I like the flows.

  2. I was carried away by the rhythm and wished it was longer. I also like your choice and use of words. Keep it up.

  3. True talk. Time waits for no man, they say. Nice one.
