I Should Care Less About Clocks

7 Mar

I should care less about clocks
and their artificial division of days
into hours, minutes, and seconds

And daylight saving time,
how nature must laugh at humanity’s
attempt to manipulate the day

For, in truth, nature
is the best time keeper
and we but amateurs

The moon waxes to full
And wanes to new,
While the sun rises and sets each day

Spring gives way to Summer which
gives way to Autumn, in turn, giving
way to Winter and then Spring again

Best it would be
If I focus on learning,
And the beauty around me

Best if I smile, and bring joy to
myself and others in our short time here,
and I should care less about clocks
