Examination of time


We are the explorers

of time

in which

our watchfulness


an awareness

of life’s turning wheel

we the silent sentinels

examine time


the glue that alloys

that anneals and binds

the eternal tick

hum and thrum

of the Atomic.

oblivious to the inhalation

and exhalation of breath

we breathe

a measurement of time.
