it's Daylight Savings Time.
The world is a little groggy
from losing an hour of sleep,
at least I am,
and so today I am contemplating time.
What does time look like?
Here it is from the poetic side:
Curious how the giant clock looms so large, but feels welcoming, not stifling.
The colors, the Roman numerals, the club chairs — it's cozy, like time is a friend rather than a taskmaster.
• • • In Pensive View • • •
From a wall to a window. And much grander.
The man is silhouetted and barely distinguishable
from the Roman numerals.
Must be a philosophical moment in there somewhere.
• • • A Modern Grandfather • • •
The romance of time has slipped away
in this minimalist interpretation
of a grandfather clock.
Stripped to the bare essentials,
and elevated on legs like stilts,
these angular timepieces carry on
a curious conversation with the arms
that sweep around and around the face.
For me the angularity highlights
the cyclical nature of time.
• • • Descending Time • • •
This blue space trimmed in white
focuses the eye on the view.
The clock is tucked in between the windows,
and echoes their curves.
It's a quiet cousin in the corner,
but completes the space to perfection.
• • • Record of Time • • •
Clock hands go round and round like the sun.
Keeping time is the heart of music.
Here, the two combine in a piece
that melds time, music, and the city of love.
