Time’s Master


Time’s Master

By: Heather Nanni

He breached the barrier

of time’s gentle pulse

and colonized a land

neither barren nor fertile


As each hour chimed

he rang louder

a cacophonous unrest

until all but he was suppressed


A benevolent master

silence so deafening

bespeaks his displeasure

while the clock strikes at itself

hammering a lamenter’s dirge


As for me

I do not wish for quiet

Only harmony
