Lost time

#Napowrimo #Time

The big clocks in Greenwich and Westminster

always seemed to chase their younger cousins

for while Tim kept the rest of time’s children

running at pace, the big clocks

wheels occasionally showed their age

where did those seconds go ?

Instant Zing to their clockwork hearts ?

Tick following Tock following Tick

provided by a simple copper coin

teaming together to ensure their

smaller family members

were kept on time – occasionally – one dropped

meanwhile the sundial

in the garden smiled

as it never lost a second
