 Objects to be Destroyed by Man Ray

Poetry challenge by Magpie Tales
Photo presented by Tess Kincaid

the rushing forward
of it
 eyes hypnotized to
the metronome
of it
incapable of action...
obsessed in observation
keeping track

close those eyes
feel the rhythm of life
leap into
the passage of time
and live it each day

Feeling the rhythm of life is sound advice. Your poem is wonderful. Sometimes I have realized that I have become more of an observer and have had to shake myself back into real life.

I hope that you are having a warm and bright Christmas season.
