The Ticking Clock

Don’t fear the ticking clock
Just listen to its rhythm:

the way it tick-tick-ticks
along with your heartstrings;

the way it explodes like fireworks
in colorful bursts of light;

the way it leads you to fields of wild flowers
where you can kick off your shoes and run

Don’t fear time passing.
Just listen.
