From Beautiful Words Vol 1 Chapter 7: “The Beauty of Knowledge”📚
As a little girl growing up, I have fond memories of clocks.
It seemed as though the stillness of my tiny existence,
Could always be measured by the “tick-tock” I heard from clocks.
My great grandmother Lucy had many clocks in her home!
Whenever I would stay over, I drifted off to the sound of “tick-tock.”
Since those innocent childhood days, I have learned this;
Life is different everyday…small chances for exact repeats!
So take the time to live life…to its truest colors of yellow.
Life is not always wearing glass slippers. But if you own a pair,
Take the time to wear them.
Life is not always a smooth ride on a boat. But if you are near one,
Take the time to go sailing.
Life is not always sweet melodies of songs. But if you know some,
Take the time to sing them.
Life may not always be a great adventure novel. But if you have one,
Take the time to read it.
As an adult, I still love the sounds that clocks make.
Although Father Time seems to be in such a slow rush.
Peaceful to my spirit are the chimes of a Grandfather’s Clock. Assuring me, in the middle of the night, at that very moment…I have time!
When I hear this sound…I know that I am taking time.
Time to mediate…to the sounds of the greatest clock of all,
The clock of life…the one for which we can never rewind.
“Beautiful masterpieces…and a constant tune to the times of our lives!”
