Obsession

obsession with words 
letters, phrases, syllables 
to write perfect verse 

racing against time
catching thoughts in mid-air flight
to rest in our hands    

0~0~0


sand trickling hourglass,
every second counts as time, 
won't wait nor tarry   

moments carved in glass,
wrapping the past with colours    
irreplaceable 



  


Posted for Haiku Heights:   Prompt # 94 is Obsession. 


One Single Impression:   Hourglass

  2. Obsession of words makes every writer strive to give a perfect verse. Beautiful haiku, and the image is so very colourful, unlike the brown ones, and lively that reflects haiku.:)

  10. Hi Grace ~~ I like it!

    those seconds will wait
    and the sands of time will stop
    when Hades freezes
