Sunday Scribblings: Marathon and A to Z: Time

The letter T for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge.
                                and
This week's Sunday Scribblings prompt is marathon.

T is for Time

Bells
ring for bliss.
Merry bells
in fortune tells.
Rushing,
flowing
in a sound of bells.
Ringing, 
swiftly
killing cells.
Testing and tiring,
lasting bells.

In what scale is time
told?
Standing still.
A day and date 
in tide and spell.
It sells and smells
whatever it tells. 

For millions,
a moment.
Rushing
and
flowing
in a sound of bells.
What is last and first,
the answer,
only time will tell.
Allowing
enduring,
lasting bells.

  1. There is utmost joy and utmost sadness in this post which spells out so clearly the joys and sadness's of life as we live it; often not noticing what is good and sadly being shocked by the inevitable. Well, that is how I read it!
