The FAB&PP Poem of the Month for November 2015

the clock is ticking faintly
(the batteries are low)
but there is no timetable
or destination

in the humming buzz that
passes these days for
silence the clock carries on

movement or decision or patience
but not regret

interrupting the stillness and the morning
sunshine only to mark it
as each moment waits
for the next
