TIME no.23

TIME no.23
TIME to listen
As winter sets into my bones
I'm taking a moment
 to stop, to rest, to listen
The rain tips and taps at my window inviting me to stay in and to take care 
TIME has settled into my core
 the TICK TOCK mirroring my restlessness 
A whisper in my ear says,
'There is no moment of delight in any            pilgrimage like the beginning of it'
It's TIME to listen
