A Loop Poetry - Time ....

I'm trying my hands at Loop Poetry in this post.

A loop poetry is a poetic form in which each stanza is made of four lines in such a fashion that the last word of each line begins the next line. The words form a loop this way and this makes it challenging and fun to write :-)
There is no restriction on the number of stanzas, though.

My Loop Poetry here is on Time...

I’m just an hourglass,
hourglass holding the time,
time that talks of the past,
past that is so sublime…

I’m here to tell you the value
value of the moments in life,
life you live shows your worth,
worth that is earned by your strife….

A moment well spent is a gift,
gift that your self must receive…
receive the bounty of your work,
work to effect what you conceive….

Precious is the gift of today,
today is what you call the ‘present’,
present is the truth forever,
forever, this is my message,to be sent.

UBC Post 22 for me :-)
