fiddlehead....ever changing, ever growing

Tuesday, April 5, 2011


This just makes me is my beloved 1/2 hour glass.....I love it.  It has many uses...    time for the kids to take turns.   time for them to stay outside.  time for t.v./wii.   
time for mommy to have her own quiet time=happy time   
time...that thing that just slips away from us so fast.  I am more aware of it than ever.

I found this poem....and think it is just lovely.


Watching the sand in the hourglass,
As it silently trickles away;
Seeing time slip though my fingers,
As quickly go the days.
Looking at each grain of sand,
As a tiny piece of time.
Too small to be measured,
Except by this heart of mine.

For every grain has a meaning,
Of time so fleeting and fast;
Each time that I see you,
More precious than the last.
Although those times are far between,
And for me all too few;
I treasure each tiny grain of sand,
As a moment spent with you.

For each moment brings me pleasure,
Savoring each morsel of time;
I drink from a cup of happiness,
As if tasting of sweet wine.
I draw from a well of contentment,
As long as I know you are near;
For one day I will look up,
And you will be standing here.

Bringing the joy you always bring,
Spilling sunlight into this place;
Warming my heart with your presence,
And the smile upon your face.
Watching the sand in the hourglass,
Until you are back with me;
As long as the tiny grains trickle down,
I will wait for you patiently.

Great capture of spring green.

Your poem is perfect...yes, time does slip away faster than one realizes. My kids are grown and gone, and it doesn't seem that long ago that they were little. Your photo is wonderfully green!
