Time in a box

If I could secure Time in a box
I would keep it there,
Dormant 
Release it only when
I have time
I’m ready for it
I know myself
I wouldn't need to steal a few minutes here and there,
Day and night would bring me to light and surrender

If I could secure Time in a box
I would release it for 
The long summer days
Sitting under the canopy of a coconut tree
Looking at the sea

I would release it for
The fragrant spring days
Breathing the scent of the flowers and my feet on the lawn

I would release it for 
The cold winter days
Enjoying the warm hearth and a cup of hot chocolate

I would release it for 
The golden autumn days
Crushing leaves and all the pumpkin spice

If I could secure Time in a box
I would release it for ...

And you? Would you secure Time or let it be free?

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

  1. I wouldn’t lock it in as a prisoner, but I might treat it like a puppy and make a comfortable box for it, with blankets and chew toys. Maybe then it would be more playful, and it would happily keep me company rather than demanding my service.
