Enigma Weekend Edition Poem: 'Time'

By A.D.

What is time?
Is it he passing
of hours
or is it
the way the earth moves?
Is it the seasons
or even
the color of the sky?
Is it the way he
looks at you
vulnerable, trusting, and loving?
What is time,
and why do we
measure it?
Maybe we long to
Capture the eternity
laid out in front of us in
smaller increments,
tiny snapshots to savor
and then slowly fade away
when the end draws near.
