    He’s a devil: old Time. He’s as tough as reality to deal with. The early bird is not a procrastinator, lol.

    “Momentous rage gives worms an early bower
    as haughty love is given to this rhyme.
    Be brave and dauntless but respect his hand;
    your hourglass is tipping with His sand.”

    There is so much passion in this! A fierce take on the prompt.

    I got so many chills reading this.

    “Your hourglass is tipping with HIS sand.” Ah! The chills! Well done.

    Thank you Meg. Yes, lol, when you get to my age, you start taking a serious look at “time”.

      Thanks so much, Splendid! I love writing sonnets. I’ve had lots of practice in the last couple of years.
