Who are you four,

Watching me

From above?

Friends or foe?

Syllabic Verse

Grand-daughter sent me this pic she recently took at the beach. I was taken aback by all the faces I saw in the clouds!

Always in Demand

Someone’s always watching me,
Or racing to beat me.
It seems they can’t live without me!
In the morning I wake them
When they tell me to,
Yet then they often get angry
And hit me!
People are always saying I move too fast,
Yet if I stop, they get upset!
I really don’t understand the logic of it all,
But then, I’m just a clock!
