Frozen in Time

Just for a moment,

They are frozen in time.

Their spirits have passed,

Their mark left in grime.

 

A quick sudden frost,

And footprints are left.

To mark someone’s passing,

Do not be bereft.

 

They simply walked by,

On a day in their life.

Mud took a snapshot,

A moment of strife.

 

Locked for a second,

And then frozen in place.

Captured in pictures,

For a moment of grace.

 

Time is immutable,

They tell me that’s true.

But I know the facts,

Truly I do.

 

Time is a moment,

A second in space.

It moves ever forward,

At its own leisure pace.

 

But it can be captured,

And kept for all time.

By the eye of a man,

And a woman of rhyme.

 

 

Once again I am inspired by a picture by Dan. He and his dog Maddie provide me with such pleasure on an ongoing basis. You can visit him at:  nofacilities.com.      You will never be disappointed!

The Cabal

This one’s for Dan at nofacilities.com.  I have used it before but given our recent discussions I thought it appropriate to offer this:

The dishwasher whispered

To the toaster one day

There’s crumbs in my workings

In an irritating way!

 

The toaster responded

With a mouth full of bread

The faults not my own

It’s the humans I said!

 

The kettle then screamed

My ass it’s a glow!

Stop bickering this minute

My lid’s gonna blow!

 

The oven just smiled

A long gentle burn

He knew what was coming

He’d just wait his turn.

 

Then a cold laden breeze

Filled the room with despair

With the fridge door ajar

They knew who was there.

 

“Breakfast is ready”

Came the bone chilling call

And the hoards then descended

On the appliances cabal.
