Passage of Time


"Time passes slowly up here in the mountains." ~ Written by Bob Dylan; sung by Judy Collins © 1970


The day is still young
up here in the mountains.

I am witnessing:


the birth of clouds,
the evaporation of dew,



the sharp, clear notes
of a White-crowned Sparrow,



the slow opening of
alpine wildflowers,

and green mountains 
reflected in dew drops.



I am hoping for:

a pattern of lines,
a collection of words,
that will witness
the sweet and gentle
passage of time.
