Hourglass Honorarium

written by: Don Knowles



My hourglass I built myself
Inside I’ve captured curves of times
Each grain of sand a portraiture
Refined Counterpart of those I love
Etched surfaces all miniature likenesses
Collective through my maturing
Bygone begotten though not forgotten
They swirl and dance in sandy gyrations
Some course some fine
Each counting seconds
Immortalization of our interaction
Nudging past the neck to descent
Random ordered to combine
To nestle atop my memory pile
Denoted with a million smiles
Then when the crowning piece of creation
Has finished its measured timely pouring
I commence a most cherished of all affairs
I turn my time piece over
So I may reincarnate
Each hug each kiss
Each wayward glance
Sheathed Within my mineral clockworks
