Café Crem

Art, Music and Words around The Coffee Table

Like Dominoes

domLike Dominoes

The days fall like dominoes
One, Two, Three, Four
They are relentless, until the last
A cascade, a waterfall of time, unslowing
Enjoy the moments in between
Enjoy the seldom seen
If we could stop an instant and hold it in our hand
But it ripples through our fingers like a grain of sand
And the days repeat and disappear
Too fast to seize the moment
Too quick to grasp the portent
Until the end of our toppled life comes into view
A pile of days, all used by you
Like dominoes.

  4. Fantastic image.

    I like this part the most:

    A cascade, a waterfall of time, unslowing
    Enjoy the moments in between
    Enjoy the seldom seen
