   THE KEEPER OF THE HOUR

 

     A step, a breath

        a smile, a tear

        each one a pulse of passing time,

        beating relentlessly

        and drifting like flotsam

        on the ocean swell.

      Wafting out of sight

        and mind only to

        return to shore.

 

 

       Where beachcombers linger

       searching for the message

       in the bottle that may

       change their lives forever.

 

 

      As grains of sand

      whisk stubbornly

      into barefoot toes

      walking the path of life

      leaving footprints in the sand

      that becomes the keeper

      of the hour.
