Fly past.


Whiz, whoosh, zip or zoom,
life rushes by in a blur
needles of time fly.
***********************************
Wings clipped and hopes caged,
trapped by illusions, man craves-
flights of fantasy.

  4. Sadly life does seem to rush by in a blur! Too bad we can't slow it down or maybe slow ourselves down! :)
