Wings of Time

weather changes, leaves fall

birds leave, south calls

time rolls

life tolls

not enough time for it all


minds change, pages turn

books open, the open learn

love matters

hate shatters

all lines are earned


cold enfolds, wisdoms recline

poles held fast, resistance defines

peace eludes

brash denudes

there just isn’t time


spring will warm, sun arrive

for the seekers, those alive

leaving behind

unkind minds

those too frozen to revive


skies move, birds return

mankind repeats, some learn

life blinks

death winks

humans only get one turn

“Beach and Time” (prompted by


in time our love bloomed

grass up through the sands many

warm beaches ago

(c) Janni Styles


time gave us chances

you denied while leaving trails

crooked on the beach

(c) Janni Styles


time was I would give

you all, my everything

that life all now beached
