Nick of Time

dverselogoanother season

turn turn turns

click

ringed gears

revolution

passing years

time

tick tick ticks

third clock

circling the sun

facing east

since time

begun

picking up sticks

spearing

scraping

scratching

stirring

and one for counting

carved and nicked

ever westward

our light runs

De Jackson, aka WhimsyGizmo, is serving up quadrille at d’Verse Poets’ Pub this evening. Drop by the Pub for a shot of #87; the rules are few, just poem up with 44 words exactly and make sure one of the 44 is the word “nick”.
